He was preceded in death by his siblings, George, Richard, Kay, Jo and John. He attended several schools in the surrounding area and graduated from New California High School in 1937. He worked for local farmers throughout school and following graduation. In 1938, he joined the National Guard and then enlisted in the United States Army in 1941.

After completing his military service, Randall returned to Marysville. He married Margaret Ann George at Trinity Lutheran Church on June 8, 1947 and began his business as a custom home builder. For over 50 years, he remained involved in construction and built many beautiful homes throughout the central Ohio area.

A lifelong member of Trinity Lutheran Church, he served on a variety of committees, in addition to tending to church renovation projects throughout the years.
