Randall was a hard worker; Rough necking, hauling hay with his brother for Bishop Brothers Hay Service, building and remodeling homes plus making furniture as a talented carpenter, farm & ranch work as well as reading wells for the Robertson family. Randall could often be found enjoying the conversations & discussions with the “Coffee Table Club” at the local diner. Not having children of his own, Uncle Randall doted on his nieces and nephews. The best quality he had was being the best uncle in the world. He loved taking them on outings, attending their ballgames, giving them rides on the combine, teaching them to drive or just hanging out with them. The smile he had when they were around told of how much love he had for all of them. Randall was also “Uncle Randall” to many other local kids as they were growing up, a positive and Christian influence in their lives.
