Cayler Lee Carter
The club just learned that Cayler did depart West recently.
For thousands of passengers passing through the TWA terminal at LAX in the late twentieth century, the highlight of the trip was meeting a dapper retired pilot, Captain Randy Kramer, who roamed the departure lounges and Ambassador Club, engaging people with warmth and humor. Everyone knew him as Captain Randy and for three decades, he was the beloved greeter and chief ambassador of TWA.
