Randy was born and raised in Bartlesville. He grew up playing any sport he could get his hands on along with being involved in Boys Scouts – achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. Randy graduated from Bartlesville High School in 1996.
He then left to serve a 2-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Philippines where he learned to speak the Tagalog language fluently.
Randy graduated from Oklahoma Wesleyan University in 2001 with a degree in Business Administration. He has worked at ConocoPhillips for more than 15 years where he currenlty resides in the Katy, TX area with his family.
Randy is most grateful for his family. He married his high school sweetheart in 1999.
Randy and Shallan have 4 kids – Avery, Austin, Addison, and Ashton who love to play sports, be involved in church activities, and serve the community along with their dad.
He has been involved with volunteering in the community since the day he started at ConocoPhillips – taking lead on a golf event that started from nothing and would eventually grow into a 4-day, $500,000 per year net to the Bartlesville Regional United Way.
Over the years the tournament has netted over $1.5MM. Besides the golf tournament, Randy has served on the School Board, lead the Adams Golf Course Operating Committee, served on the WCYBS board, served on the WCSC board, along with putting on golf tournaments for the Quarterback Club, ARC Fore n Score, and the Boy Scouts of America.
Randy wants to live his life as he knew Burk would have – working hard, playing hard, and serving even harder – serving the Lord by reaching out to others in need of a helping hand.
