Very, very sad news – Randy Biallas passed away during the night August 15, 2018 after an extended period of illness.
Randy received his Fellowship this year after a four decade distinguished career with the National Park Service. Also a Fellow in the Association for Preservation Technology and an Honorary Member of the American Society of Landscape Architects, Randy had an indelible impact on two professions "for his contribution to the preservation of the architectural and cultural landscape heritage in America's national parks [and for his] most important accomplishment, the training and mentoring of preservation professionals in the National Park Service." said his sponsor, W. Lewis (Bill) Barlow, IV, FAIA.
Our sincere condolences to his family, colleagues, and friends.
Sorry to hear of the passing of one of my classmates. Way too soon for such a loss.

Dear Colleagues – Just wanted to add my note of sympathy to the friends and family of Randy Biallas. We worked closely together when I started as a Historical Architect for the NPS in 1979. I worked first at Nowell NHP and then in the National Capital Region. I was a kid and knew nothing – Randy took me under his wing; talked about projects and goals; introduced me to people; asked about my work; and was one of those truly open, friendly, and helpful people that each of us should meet at least once in their career. We stayed in touch when I continued to Cuyahoga Valley in Ohio, but then, unfortunately, lost touch when I left the NPS in 1990. I was shocked and saddened to hear of his untimely passing, but recalled his mentoring with a smile. I would not have gotten to where I am without his advice.
