    Does anyone here know his where about or have any updates on him? He hasn't been active his face book in over a year.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news.. Hate to say it.. But I think he's passed-on.

    Really sad if its the case. He was one of the first names I came across on the internet when I realized WT had deliberately lied. I appreciated what he and others like him (including ones here) did to warn and encourage those of us who were still in.

    I found this website dated 2018 saying he had health issues.

    I tried a google search for any obit, but didn't come up with anything. He would be about 70 now.

    Yeah it was a real eye-opener wasn't it? I mean when you realize the Borg has deliberately lied.

    With the airing of Barb Anderson on dateline in 2002 and stumbling across Randall Watters just a few years later.....my waking-up in around winter 2006.07. Realizing it wasn't just me,,, but a vast number of other Dubs waking-up also. That I wasn't going 'nuts', but I was just 'waking-up"

    You wouldn't think ""Gods"" channel of information would be lying deliberately now would you, impossible right.

    But these people who you came across,,,,true bravery and God bless their souls!!

    Very sad if this turns out to be true ,he was one of the first I came across when searching for answers.

    I was going to ask about this just a few days ago.. I hope he is still around but he did look quite ill in some recent videos that I found.

    It's such a shame his website freeminds is not online anymore, there was some unique material from Bethel from 1970s that you can't find anywhere else.

    I really hope he is ok! 70 isn't massively old, so hoping he's ok? Do you think maybe Rick would know how he is??🤞

    I think it's an incredible shame free minds is no longer available and that no one was able to archive it.

    The Free Minds site he ran for years was one of the first places I went when I knew there was something wrong with Watchtower. I will remain ever grateful it existed.

    I worry about Randy also. He contacted me about a year ago, but I was in the middle of a situation I could not respond. He was in Texas then. It's been a rough few years for him. He has family, in the midwest I think. I hope things are sorted.

    Randy was the guy for a long time. He had the foresight to collect the JW information and had friends all over the world.
