“Randall had a dream of a living in Alaska, he achieved this in the early 1990s. He was free spirit with a heart of gold. He would help out in any way, literally giving his own shirt off his back, He loved spending time with his three daughters and their mother that joined him in 1995. He also enjoyed all the adventures that Alaska offered from hunting to fishing. Randall was employed by various construction contractors in the Kenai and Soldotna areas and also did roustabout work on the North Slope. He made many friends along his journey. He returned to his home town two years ago to be closer to his parents Randall had his plane ticket to return to Kenai on the day he was buried.
