To Radford's Wife, Family, and Friends,
I just learned this evening of Radford's untimely passing. While I did not know Radford long, or in any capacity beyond his employment, he played a huge part in my family's life when we moved to Fort Wayne. My oldest son, five at the time, called Radford his best friend and missed him greatly when we moved out of the Residence Inn and into our own home.
I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry for your loss and please accept my sincerest condolences.
We met at Lincoln and Anns wedding on June 18th 2005, where Rad was one of the three best men- but he was by far the trendiest with his Oakley glasses! My memory to share with you is about his genorsity and thoughtfulness. That wedding day was a bright and sunny June day and he looked after us all - and loaned me a pair of these trendy sunglasses, which I was thrilled about.
God bless Rad, gone from our lives but not from our hearts.

Moon and stars pour their beaming light on you

Radford was an incredible employee, a huge asset to the hotel. I've never had such a great front desk clerk work for me. He was fantastic at his job and our guests LOVED him!
That being said, personally I will miss him very dearly. Radford always seemed to be waiting for me to walk in the door to give me a smart alec comment or joke and I couldn't wait to hear it. It seemed that he was determined to

I’ve tried to write this so many times but it’s just so hard. It’s not hard to write how much of a great friend Rad was, it not hard to write about the fun times we had. It’s hard to imagine that he’s not here anymore.
I’ve tried to recall this week how we first meet, all I remember was that I’d just moved from Scotland, enrolled at the art college and knew no one.
We met in the first

I was Radford's biggest fan here at the hotel. We worked together so well and when he wasn't here I always said, "Why can't Radford be working today?" It will feel really wierd without him here and I guess it really hasn't quite sunk in. I will miss him more than you can imagine. He was so great with the guests and the people and always knew what was going on. As far as I am concerned he cannot

I hope you don't mind that Nancy shared this tragic news with me. I just wanted to tell you that I am so very sorry for your loss, and I'm praying for you to find the peace and comfort you need. Thinking of you every day~

Although we have never met, I am currently a guest at the Residence Inn here in Fort Wayne and asked moments ago, "Where's Radford? I am shocked and so very sorry for your loss. Although I only knew him from my stays here, he was the most kind and happy person. I have travelled for 32 years globally and nevertheless I always looked forward to hearing his great accent and him saving my favorite room for me. I wish
