Randy, the prolific Sean Cody adult performer, has died at the age of 33, Str8UpGayPorn.com reported. He was, as the site said, the most prolific performer for the adult streaming producer.

"A family member of Randy's has confirmed with Str8Up that the beloved performer died yesterday in Massachusetts after being hospitalized last week with kidney problems. The exact cause of death is not known at this time, but Randy himself did launch a GoFundMe six days ago asking for help from his hospital bed."

In his GoFundMe post, he wrote: "Hello, I am in need of help for when I recover from my injury. I woke up deathly ill and finally went to the hospital and my kidney function was at 21% amongst a couple other issues but the kidneys being the most serious. I am feeling better. I have been in the hospital for 5 days now and as most of you know I am in recovery and I was living in a halfway house. Because I have been gone for so long I was discharged. Now when I leave I dont know what I am going to do or where I am going to go. I have been in recovery since November 9, 2021. Life has gotten much better and I am so happy to have made it this far. Unfortunately, I have this setback with my health. Any donations will go towards finding a place to live and help me get back on my feet. Anything helps. To all my fans who still support me and follow me, I love you all!"

Randy, Str8UpGayPorn added, had battled addiction over the last few years and had been open about his struggles on social media before he went into recovery.

Randy began his career at Sean Cody in 2013 after responding to a Craigslist ad from the studio. Once his solo video was finished, Randy returned for dozens of scenes as both a top and a bottom. Over his career, he made some 53 videos for Sean Cody. Walden Woods, a long-time director for the company who supervised many of Randy's videos, wrote upon hearing of his death: "My heart is broken to hear about the passing of Randy. I met him on set almost 10 years ago. He was always a good guy to be around, and had some amazing energy and authentic charm that was undeniable. From some amazing behind-the-scenes moments to Puerto Rico and Palm Springs, I had a great time every day he was on set. It's incredibly sad to hear of his passing. You were a giant Randy, rest in peace."

In a 2018 interview with Str8UpGayPorn.com, he identified as straight. Asked about appearing in gay porn, he said: "I was nervous at first. But then, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be."

When asked about what was most rewarding about his work, he said: "I really give it my all. I'm just grateful for the opportunity to do this, and grateful for all the fans that I have. I love them all, and they are what keeps my career going."
