Following high school, Randy began his training to become a journeyman electrician.

Randy was a longtime member of the IBEW Local 584 which is an electrician's union in Tulsa.
Randy suffered a tragic accident in 1984 however, his spirit never wavered. He loved to travel with his family and his "sitters" throughout the years.
Many memories have been made at Randy's house especially during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
