We are deeply saddened to announce that W. Randall (Randy) Rawson, a superb friend, mentor and advocate, died on November 23 after a brief period of treatment for a recently diagnosed illness. In June, Rawson celebrated his 25th anniversary with the American Boiler Manufacturers Association (ABMA), including having served 13 years as its President and CEO.
Rawson was a major booster of the research CSR undertakes, encouraging ABMA members to support the mission of CSR through in-kind donations and he himself encouraged the Association to provide sponsorship to the Coalition. He had a sharp sense of humor, a dry wit, and a passion for family, friends and the boiler manufacturing companies he represented.
Randy leaves his family to cherish his memory including his wife Teresa Rawson, daughter, Jamie Catherine and son William Zachary Rawson, and his dog, best friend and faithful companion Winnie.
Randy’s favorite saying was “the more people I meet, the more I love my dog.” In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to GRREAT P.O. BOX 190 Merrifield, VA 22116, for Randy’s love of Golden Retriever’s.
