OBIT CharlesLomax

Charles “Randy” Lomax passed away at his home in Los Altos on July 28 of complications from melanoma. He was 68.

Fiercely competitive, Randy also epitomized good sportsmanship. Win or lose, Randy made every game—cards, water fights, tennis or golf—fun for everyone. “Total Domination” was his signature rallying cry. Skiing was Randy’s passion. He skied all over the country and the world but Squaw Valley was his ‘home’ mountain for over 40 years. He was a patient and excellent ski instructor to many friends and family members.
