Like many young men, life gave him many challenges. Randy labored long and hard on the decision to move from Arizona to Texas after he was offered a job in Dallas. Even though he would have to leave his nephews Shelby and Cole Luke, his mother Freddie encouraged him to try it, and if it didn't work, he could always come home. Yet, Randy never returned to Phoenix to live, as Texas became his new home. Randy worked for many companies in the 20+ years in the Dallas area and the last ones were United Copper and Manner Polymers.
