Randy was born in Ogden, Utah, to Howard Archie and Ruby Stephens Robinson on May 18, 1950, the oldest of nine children. He attended Sunset Elementary School, Sunset Junior High School, and graduated from Clearfield High School in 1968, where he was a running back on the school’s football team. He joined the Navy in 1969 and was stationed in Stockton, California and Kodiak, Alaska, where he developed a deep love for the great outdoors of Alaska. He served his country for four years before being dismissed honorably in 1973, but continued to serve in the Reserve until May 4, 1979.
Randy married Brenda Payne on August 14, 1970 and had three beautiful cherished children, Jayson, Texie and Bridger. He then divorced. He married Jodi Winn on May 28, 1988 and subsequently divorced.
After being discharged from the Navy, Randy went to work at Hill Air Force Base as a general purpose maintenance mechanic. After 33 years in the public service, he retired on September 30, 2006.
Randy was a devoted and loving father to his three children. He had a great capacity for love and was always there for anyone who needed help. He took his responsibilities as a father and older brother to heart and was always there to lend a helping hand or a listening ear.
Randy was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was from Clinton 21st Ward. In his youth he was very active in Scouting, loving every aspect of the program.
Randy enjoyed being outdoors, especially hunting. He spent countless October days happily hunting deer and elk with his family on the Lost Creek property. It was the highlight of his year. He also loved his horses, where he spent much of his time riding and tending to animals and working on his father’s farm. He enjoyed being in the mountains, skiing on snow, going out on a boat and water skiing. And most recently, he enjoyed tinkering for hours in his newly built garage.
