Hi I'm Randy.

I'm a husband, father, grandfather, hunter, fisherman, black belt (Hop Ki Do Tae Kwon Do), Airborne Ranger, teacher, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a retired Army Officer. My family and I moved 17 times in 23 years of service. We have lived in California, Colorado, Georgia, Oklahoma, Maryland, Washington, Germany, Korea, and Panama. I served during 5 wars or conflicts and never saw combat. I have commanded Company/ Battery units as well as Battalion sized. I love the outdoors and all that it offers. I am the Director of Army Instruction for the Denver Public School System and am responsible for the instruction of over 1600 students in leadership. I am a Scout Master and Commissioner for the Boy Scouts of America. I believe in freedom for all. I own an embroidery business.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I believe that Joseph Smith, a boy of 14 saw and testified of seeing Jesus Christ and the Eternal Father in Heaven. I believe in the testimonies of my ancestors who came from Denmark in 1856 and walked across the plains having only Danish to communicate as a language. A Great Great Grandfather who was tarred and feathered for his belief in Joseph Smith. But most of all I am thankful for the personal revelation and the witness of the Holy Ghost that the Book of Mormon is true, that Jesus is the Christ, and what we do to give service to others, counts.

How I live my faith

I serve, when called, to provide instruction and leadership for the temporal and spiritual needs to members of my Ward and Stake. I have served in the nursery, Primary teacher, Sunday School teacher, a home teacher to a family over 30 miles away. Every Month I would drive to see to their needs or wants. Not because I was told to but because I wanted to. I spend up to two weeks a year with our youth to help them become stronger, and a positive asset to the community.
