He was born on April 5, 1957 in St. Marys, a son of the late Harold “Rudy” and Rita Wendel Simbeck.
Randy was a lifelong resident of the area and graduate of St. Marys High School, class of 1975. He was a member of the Sacred Heart Church. A true American patriot, Randy served in the U.S. Navy, proudly serving his country from 1975-1979.
