Sisters & Brothers, It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of Brother Randy Peereboom.
Randy will be sorely missed by those of us that were fortunate enough to have known him. Randy's original sense of humour that was appreciated by is fellow railroaders. The below exchange is but one example.
RTC: "You interested in protecting a train?"
Randy: "What's the capital of Romania?"
RTC: " I don't know"
Randy: "Bucharest, and that's what I'm gonna do when I get in"
On behalf of the members of the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference Division 295 we would like to extend our sincere condolences to the Peereboom family.
