I am proud to be an ally of the LGBT community, but more proud to be the younger brother of Randy Bauer. When I was in Junior High School, Randy came out while attending UCLA. I remember my dad being very sad at the time, not because my brother was gay, but because he was worried for him. Times were different then.Fast forward many years later, Randy was a successful executive with Toyota Motors and went on to marry the love of his life, Dennis. Sadly, Randy passed away from complications of Prostate Cancer back in August, 2015. Through exceptional financial planning, Randy took care of Dennis in the traditional way that spouses take care of each other. His sense of humor and kindness is missed every day.
