He was an active member of the Masonic Lodge of Manteca as a 32nd degree member.
Randy enjoyed spending time outdoors. He spent plenty of time amongst friends, hunting and fishing all over the state. He especially enjoyed duck hunting. His passion for hunting led to gunsmithing and eventually competitive trapshooting. In the late 1980s Randy started what would become a decade of winning championships at the State, Regional and National level. His achievement earned him induction into the National trapshooting Hall of Fame in 2005 and Manteca Hall of Fame in 2013.
Randy was a great friend to many, young and old and he will be truly missed by all who knew him.
