He was united in marriage to Darlene F. (LaMont) on Jan. 21, 1984, in Blue Earth. The family called Albert Lea home.

When Randy wasn’t working on farm equipment, you could find him hunting, trap shooting or maintaining his yard. Yardwork and landscaping were where Randy was at peace. He also enjoyed going on many vacations with his wife, Darlene; Florida was a favorite trip of theirs!

Randy can be described as hardworking, kind, easy-going and loving. He never complained about anything and took life as it came.

He is preceded in death by both parents, Clarence (Emily) Cox; and a stepson in-law, Tim Wolf.

Randy is survived by his wife of 36 years, Darlene Cox; stepchildren Cindy Spencer, Shelly (Dennis) Groven and Nicole (Gary) Gilliam; grandchildren Michelle Spencer, Amy Groven, Amber Groven and Brittany Billings; several great-grandchildren; siblings Debra (Ronnie) Martin and Gordon Cox; as well as many extended relatives and friends.

Blessed be his memory.
