Randy grew up around the New Virginia area where he started school and finished in Osceola.

He worked for the Des Moines-Pleasant Hill Plumbing and during this time drove all over Des Moines on a backhoe. He worked for Saxton, Inc. building off ramps along the interstate. He and his dad worked for mechanical contractors by the name of L.A. Fulton & Sons for around 14 years. During this time, one of their jobs was plumbing the Design Center in Ames. This was a six story high building (a first for them) and when it was finished, Randy was very proud of the fat all the stools flushed. He also enjoyed the time he did dirt work for Bud Jones. Randy and his dad did many jobs of their own all over the New Virginia/Truro area.

He has many special friends and appreciated their help and support through the years. This meant a lot to him.
