Randy was an avid ham radio operator and loved to attend ham fests and meet with his ham radio buddies. He loved to grow lemon trees and give his family and friends lemons, insisting they make a pie and share it with him. He also loved his Boston Terriers and always had them by his side over the years. Randy was a master welder who owned his own welding company. He later worked and retired after 20 years as a welder at Beaird Industries. He enjoyed gardening and plants of any kind. He had a gift for growing anything he attempted.

Randy will be greatly missed by his family and friends, but he will forever be in their hearts.
