Family members have announced the passing of Bryan Randall, who had been married to Sandra Bullock for over a decade and was known for her battle with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, an advanced form of neurodegenerative disease.
Bryan Randall’s family released a statement to CBS News, expressing their sadness that he passed away peacefully on August 5th after battling ALS for 3 years. They stated that they were willing to share his journey with others and that everyone who had loved him would have done the same.
The statement expressed gratitude towards the “sadical physicians” and “beautiful nurses” who cared for him, often sacrificing their families to be with us. The family requested privacy as they grieve the impossibility of bidding farewell to Bryan.
The ALS Association states that the disease causes degeneration in motor neurons that carry messages and images from the spinal cord to the brain, which limits the ability of the body to control muscle movement. As a result, people lose the capacity to speak, eat, move, and breathe.
She spoke to Red Table Talk in December 2021 and revealed that she had been seeing Randall since around 2015, when he took a picture of her son Louis’ birthday. Bullock, aged 59, became romantically involved with her after the incident. She labeled him essentially saint.
“He has not reached the level of human evolution,” she remarked, clarifying that she adopted her daughter, Laila, shortly after their relationship began.
She said: ‘I found the love of my life.
Randall had a daughter with Bullock, in addition to the two children he adopted.
She said of the couple: ‘It’s the best thing ever. You don’t need a piece of paper to be lovable and loving. And you don’t have to get told to go through with if you are going to storm with some good guy.
Gesine Bullock-Prado, a pastry chef and sister of Bulloch, wrote on Monday that she believes her partner has found the perfect fishing spot and is now casting his lure into busy rivers, alongside salmon.
“Although ALS is cruel, my sister and the team of nurses she brought into their care have provided so much comfort to him,” Bullock-Prado stated. “Bryan, we’re praying for his rest.”
The family suggested donating to the ALS Association or Sean M. Healey & AMG Center for ALA at Massachusetts General Hospital.
