With a strong work ethic Randy began his more than 30-year career in telecommunications with the Rochester Telephone Company as a lineman. For many years he worked on new installations and repair before retiring from RTC in 2002.
In his early years, Randy spent several summers at the Rochester Little League Park, coaching and umpiring youth baseball. He also loved spending time on Lake Manitou fishing and water skiing. Randy is remembered for the meticulous manner he kept his lawn and landscape manicured to perfection. His car and truck detailed with a showroom appearance. As a grill master, Randy always served the juiciest, best burgers, chicken and steaks. He also made amazing loaded chocolate chip cookies from scratch and shared them with family and friends at the holidays. An avid animal lover, Randy was the proud Dad to Calvin the Boston Terrier and a few other Bostons along the way.
