Randy Dahlman was born February 3, 1960 at Meeker County Memorial Hospital. His mother and father, Lawrence and Violet (Olson) Dahlman looked at each other and said, let’s look out for this one. Randy grew up on a small farm south of Dassel, MN where he was able to play, hunt, and fish, but what Randy really loved was farming with his dad.

He worked from 1987-1992 with Jack Thompson Shows. Randy moved to Rochester, MN in 1994 where he lived out his remaining years. Randy had lots of hobbies: woodworking, gardening, hunting, and fishing.
Randy met Kay Ingalls in 1999 and they were married October 7, 2000 at Peace Plaza in downtown Rochester.
