Randy Friesen is a business strategist, manager and educator based in Vancouver, BC and Detroit, Michigan. He is also a husband and father. He loves the creative process and is active in creating art and music. This blog began as a way of working through his son’s passing at the age of 17. He was so moved by the support of the on-line community, friends and family, that he is hoping these posts help others on their journey.
His son, Christian Friesen, will be remembered on many levels and the Christian Friesen Memorial Fund, through Simon Fraser University, has been established as a lasting memory and a way to assist others to change the world. Whether it was lacrosse, school or helping people, Chris always strove to Be The Best. Many of those life lessons came from his family and reinforced by incredible teachers, coaches, friends and relatives along the way. This blog will aim to help share those tips and exchange ideas with a thousand young men and women like Chris and anyone else who wants to participate on the journey.
