Randy continued his education at Iowa Lakes Community College, receiving his Associate of Arts degree in the Feed & Fertilizer Program.

On Aug. 20, 1988, Randy had the pleasure of marrying Leanne Domek at First Presbyterian Church in Estherville and for the last 28 years Randy and Leanne have settled down in Milford to raise their two children, Morgan and Dalton.

In his earlier years Randy worked for Beck Excavating Ida Grove Elevator & Farmers CoOp of Milford until 1999. He then started working for Kaneb Pipeline Service in 1999, which changed ownership to Valero Industries and recently NuStar Energy.
