Randolph was a member of the Richville United Church, the Richville Historical Association, Macomb and Rossie Historical Associations. As a dairy farmer he also served on the Board of Gouverneur COOP, as well as Marble City COOP. He obtained his certification as an artificial inseminator. He loved his life as a farmer, his family, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. He loved traveling by train, plane, or automobile, from ocean to ocean and his favorite western states. He was always an observer of farm country where ever he went and seemed to meet a fellow farmer whatever his traveling mode. Family visits, reunions, and his annual July birthday parties were the joy of his life.
At Randolph’s request there will be no funeral services. However, his grandchildren will host the annual July party on July second for family to celebrate his life and to be present at the burial at Rossie River Side Cemetery.
