Ed Randash Memorial Scholarship
Ed Randash was an avid automotive enthusiast. He loved auto racing of all types, restoring and collecting vintage and collectible vehicles, getting his hands dirty working on cars, being involved with buying and selling used cars and above all, helping his sons work on and learn about collectible vehicles. He also introduced them to the exciting world of the used car market. Mr. Randash loved life and lived his motto “Make every day your best.” He was involved with his church and loved his faith. He made every person he met feel like they were his best friend. The YMCA was his home every morning at 6:00 a.m., and he enjoyed spending time with his workout buddies and encouraging them to give it their best. He was a rare individual who liked to count calories and kept track of what he ate. Ed always seemed to have a smile on his face knowing he still hadn’t used up all his daily allotted calories. Ed supported education. He encouraged young people to “make every day your best” by pursuing and developing their talents through education. Sadly, Mr. Randash passed away October 2, 2015, at age 73 after a valiant battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. In memory of Ed and his passion for cars and education, his friends and family established the Ed Randash Memorial Scholarship at MSU Billings to provide financial assistance to City College students who share his enthusiasm for cars. The first scholarship was awarded in academic year 2016-2017.
