    Hammericksen collapsed Tuesday at his home and died Thursday at Providence Medford Medical Center. He worked at the G-T from 1974 until 1986 under former G-T sports editor Roy Gault. Hammericksen had been a sports columnist and the former sports editor at the Medford Mail Trribune since 1987.
    Everyone at the newspaper is devastated by the news, "Mail Tribune editor Bob Hunter said Thursday. "Randy was a good friend and a good guy. He covered so much grownd as sports editor and sports writer and through his stories touched the lives of so many people in the valley in a positive way."
    Hammericksen covered Oregon State sports, golf, high school sports, American Legion baseball and wrote numerous columns and feature stories during his tenure at G-T.
    Randy always tried to put a positive spin on stories, from his perspective, and that was really appreaciated by the coaches, "CHS football coach Gary Beck said "It's a sad day to hear that he has died."
    Beck recalled how Hammericksen got involved with the Spartan baseball team during its 1979 trip to Klamath Falls for the state championship game against Klamath Union.
    "He came down to do the story, followed the team guidelines and wore a shirt and tie," Beck said. "He did a lot to try to get involved, and represent high school athletics in a postive way.
    Born in Salt Lake City, Hammericksen moved with his family to Albany as a child. He played basketball, golf and cross country at Albany Union High Shoon and graduated from that school in 1965. He then attended Contra Costa College in San Pablo, California, for one year before transfering to OSU.
    He worked at the Oceanside (Calif.) Blade-Tribune, the G-T and the Eureka (Calif.) Times-Standard before going to Medford in 1987. He became the newspaper's primary sports columnist in 1996.
    "Anything that had to do with a ball, he was interested in," said his wife of 30 years, Beth (Vandehey) Hammericksen. They were married in Corvallis in 1970.
    During his career, Hammericksen coverd two NBA Finals, five Rose Bowls and the 1996 Olmpic Games in Altanta.
    In Medford, he was a fixture at high school sports event, and carved out a niche as a golf columnist. He treasured the memory of once having played in a pro-am event with Jack Nicklaus, posting a score of 1-under-par while Nicklaus shot even par.
    In addition to his wife, Hammericksen is survived by eight children: Denice Roe, 27, of Santa Barbara, Calif.; Jamie, 25, of Klamath Falls; Rani, 22, Melanie, 20, Melissa, 20, Corey, 17, Keri, 15, and Aaron 9, all of Medford. Many attended elementary and middle school in Corvallis.
