In 2004, they moved to Lovelock, Nev., where Randy, his wife, father-in-law, and mother-in-law opened a restaurant - "Sha-Boom's). He learned how to "flip burgers" like a professional and had great fun at it. Randy and his father-in-law created a signature burger - "The Double Sha-Boom". He was one of the few people who could consume this one pound burger.

Randy had a strong interest in working in mining. He began his mining career on Aug. 10, 2006 for Newmont. He loved working underground.

Randy really enjoyed hunting (especially in Montana) and fishing. It gave him time to visit with his mom, dad, and brother when he was there.

The San Francisco 49'ers were the only football team to Randy, and Budlight and Pepsi were his choice of beverages.
