He attended Westmoreland County Public Schools. He joined the U.S. Army in 1966 and fought for our country in the Vietnam War.
Randy was loved by many, as a son, brother, friend, father, grandfather (the list goes on) and the Patriarch of his family. He was the glue, caring for and loving his children making sure they felt his love. He was the embodiment of a family man, the old school kind, one of the best of them.
His hobbies included traveling, working out, and was an avid book reader. He LOVED his Country Music and his western movies. His two favorite songs were “Follow Me” by Uncle Kracker and “Tonight’s the Night” by Rod Stewart. He was always there for his family every step of the way to help supply their every need.
