Randy was born on July 6, 1940 in Brady, Texas. His family relocated to Los Angeles in 1950. Randy attended El Segundo High School, which is where he met lifelong friends, including his future longtime partner, Roberta Lamping. Randy received his bachelor's degree at UCLA in 1962, and had a 45 year career as a stock broker and financial advisor. Randy enjoyed the arts, travel and sports. He was known for his quick wit and love of books. An avid fisherman, he loved the outdoors, from the big skies of Montana to the wide expanse of the California desert. Travel & Leisure magazine once described him as "The stockbroker with the heart of a cowboy."
Randy is survived by his life partner of 55 years, Roberta Lamping, and his daughter, Erin Johnson. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Randy's honor to your favorite charity
