R.I.P. Randy Davis

As I mentioned in an earlier post, Randy Davis was killed skiing at Squaw on Christmas Day. Skiing was Randy's passion in life, and a memorial fund has been set up in his name, and it's goal is to give kids money to go to summer ski camps. Below is the posted e-mail with the link.

Dear Randy's Crew,

As many of you know, CHARITYSMITH has been asked to create a memorial fund celebrating the life of Randy Davis and his love of skiing Squaw Valley.  We are honored to do so.  

Announcing the Randy Davis Memorial Fund  celebrating Randy Davis and his love of life, people, and freestyle skiing.  

Awards from the Randy Davis Memorial fund will be given annually to local Tahoe/Truckee skiers to fund attendance at summer training camps.  Randy himself would have loved such a scholarship, as he spent summers at the Olympic Park in Park City – training to achieve his goal of being a world class aerialist.  Recipients will be selected on annual basis with presentation of the award at the annual end-of-the–season Squaw Valley Freestyle Team Party.  Randy was notorious for attending this event dressed to the nines.  One year, he showed up in a three-piece zoot-suit.

If you have photos for the website, PLEASE email them to   (We are going to build a slide show that runs continuously on his page.)  Also, note the message board on his page, where you can post a remembrance .   

We are all a part of this big freestyle family.  It is so incredibly sad to lose someone who embodied this sport, this team, and this family bond like Randy did, and still does.

Here's to Randy.
