Richard “Rick” Randall passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 7, 2020 at his home in Ogilvie, MN after a long, hard fought battle with leukemia. He was surrounded by his family and went out of this world on his terms. He was 62 years old.
Rick was born in Mora, MN on October 9, 1958 to Richard and Mary (Dow) Randall. He spent his childhood and teenage years in Duluth MN and then Mora MN. At the age of 17, Rick joined the United States Marine Corp where he served proudly for the next 4 years. He spent 2 years stationed in Okinawa, Japan. Anyone who knew Rick heard his unforgettable stories of his time spent there. He was honorably discharged in 1980 and then moved back to the Mora area. Rick’s military career was not over with the USMC, he also served in the National Guard in the mid-1980s through the early 1990’s.
Rick met his future wife and best friend Erlene Hermanson in 1981. The two were joined in marriage on February 13, 1982 and through their union they welcomed 3 children to the world, Jeremiah, Nathaniel, and Rikki.
Rick enjoyed deer hunting at “the Shack”, fishing, and perusing craigslist for his next “dream” boat. The thing that brought him the most joy was spending time with his family at the cabin, particularly his grandchildren who were his pride and joy. Rick built the family cabin and was extremely proud of this accomplishment and the memories made there will last in the hearts of his family forever.
Rick is joined in death by his parents Richard “Dick” Randall and Mary Dow; sister Holly; and best friends Danny and Dave Lilienthal.
Rick will be deeply missed by his wife Erlene; children, Jeremiah (Dennell) Randall, Nathan Randall, Rikki (Greg) Stromberg, and Ann Erickson; grandchildren, James, Rebecca, Vinny, and Miah; sister Gayla (David) Olson; and several friends and family members that he loved very much.
