Terrible news to share. GardenLine with Randy Lemmon was always willing to share lawn care advice with KPRC2 / Click2Houston viewers when I asked for his help.
Prayers for his family tonight.

I will miss my dear friend Randy Lemmon with GardenLine with Randy Lemmon. Randy was a forceful influence and one who pushed me to have a different approach on how to market products. He was a mentor, a friend and someone I looked up to. If it wasn’t for Randy, my creative side wouldn’t have developed the way it did. Knowing he watched a clip or a post I made and getting a mention on the radio as a result, was validation I was doing something right. Thank you for your friendship and support. I will miss texting you during the show on the weekend and trying to convince you that soccer is a fun sport to watch. I love you, man!
My thoughts and prayers are with the Lemmon family.
We are saddened that Randy Lemmon from GardenLine on KTRH passed away today. He was a guest on one of our most viewed episodes of Member Focus Monday, sharing information about how to help your plants recover from the winter freeze in 2021 and how to improve the curb appeal of listings. He returned a second time and once again showed that he was generous with his time and insights. Our thoughts are with his wife, two children, and all who knew and loved him.

Today, sadly we learned of the passing of our good friend of more than 30 years, KTRH 740 GardenLine Radio Host Randy Lemmon. Ken has been friends with Randy since even before Randy was on the radio. Randy lived in the area at the time, and the two would talk about gardening and new products coming on the market, like organics that grew to become the foundation of edible gardening today. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Randy, and also to his family during this time of sudden loss.
