Randy Martin, who was known as the ‘Lone Wolf’ on the former DIY Network reality series Texas Flip N Move, has died. He was 65.
Martin’s death was announced on his official Facebook page, along with a video slide show featuring pictures of Martin throughout his life. According to Deadline, the reality TV star passed at his home after having been diagnosed with liver cancer.
“We are broken-hearted to let you know that Randy passed away early this morning,” read the statement posted on Martin’s Facebook page. “Please pray for his wife and family as they navigate this difficult time. You will be greatly missed.”
Martin’s Texas Flip N Move costars, Toni Snow and Donna Snow Barksdale (aka the Snow Sisters) shared the video tribute and message on their own Facebook page, which received thousands of comments from fans paying tribute to the beloved TV star.
“Randy was a great guy….the kind of man you would want for a friend. His laughter was so contagious. Prayers for all who knew and loved him,” wrote one fan. “So sorry, he seem to be a great guy….the kind of man everybody needed as a friend,” added another.
Texas Flip N Move premiered on DIY Network in 2014 and followed professional home renovators who purchase older houses to flip for profit. Martin made regular appearances throughout the show’s first season before becoming a featured main cast member until 2017.
Suzi Slay was arrested in 200

She pled guilty to the charges and was sentenced to 12 months of community supervision and was ordered to pay $700.50 in fines.
The Young Guns cited “creative differences” with ‘Texas Flip N Move’.

Twitter has feelings about them leaving and a group of fans even went so far as to start a Change.org petition to try and get The Young Guns back in front of the cameras. Their efforts were not successful, and the petition has since been closed. Texas Flip N Move has gone on to produce multiple more seasons without any contribution from Cody and Suzi.

Rumors circulated around why the Young Guns left the show and most claim that they left because of contract disputes or behind-the-scenes struggles for more screen time. Neither can be confirmed, and the DIY Network never made an official statement on the Slays’ departure, but we do know that Cody responded to a Twitter user about why they left and revealed that they didn’t exactly “leave” on their own accord. When a fan asked if they quit, he responded, “Not exactly, creative differences!” Article continues below advertisement
When asked to explain further, he responded, “It…means we cannot agree on behind-the-scenes stuff so we had to agree to disagree.” Article continues below advertisement
