Randy was born on June 23, 1955 in Hutchinson, Kansas, the son of Patrick Paul and Shirley (Sue) Cole Frank.
He graduated from high school at Hutchinson High as did his wife to be, Judy. They grew up together in the same area and knew each other as children. He then graduated from Fort Hays State in 1978. On July 28, 1979, he married Judy K. Evans in Hutchinson, Kansas. She survives of the home. After college, Randy began a long career of selling heavy construction equipment throughout the state of Kansas. The last 25 years, he sold for Road Builders Machinery and Supply Co. out of Kansas City. In 1999, Randy purchased a lake property (without telling his wife until after the fact) naming it Lake Loski Dog. This lake has been a center of family activities and provided years of fun for his family and friends. Throughout his life, he was an avid outdoors man, and shared that love with his children and friends. Randy spent several years coaching his son and others in the Lawrence Kids Wrestling Program; as well as, many years cheering for his daughter on the softball field. He loved giving his grandchildren rides on the tractor and taking them fishing for their first time. Whether he was traveling near or far, life was always good with his family by his side. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and mentor.
