Randy Gordon Hauth was born October 5, 1959, in Sleepy Eye to Gordon and Marlys (Briske) Hauth.  He was a 1979 graduate from Springfield High School.  Growing up on his family’s dairy farm, Randy started his first job as a milk truck driver on the weekends.  This began his long career in agriculture and transportation.  He lived his life with an outstanding work ethic and a strong drive to wake up at the crack of dawn to get things done.  Many have heard him utter the phrase, “Come on, you’re burning daylight”.  Besides his time working on the farm as a crop and dairy farmer, he was a true jack-of-all trades, later working in carpentry and floor installation.  He truly enjoyed being his own boss and later owned and operated his own trucking business.  Many cherished memories were made on trips in “Grandpa’s Rig”.  He was united in marriage to Jennifer Zierke on November 28, 1998, in Sleepy Eye.  Randy was also a gifted musician, sharing his musical talents for over 45 years.  He played bass guitar and sang in numerous bands over the years, starting with his three brothers’ band, the Nightriders.  He also played with Kool Breeze, the Beer Choir Band, the Missfits, the Hauth Family Band, and many others.  Randy was always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need.  He was an active volunteer at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in New Ulm where he served as a musician, usher, and in any fellowship roles that needed assistance.  What he took the most pride in was being a devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend.  Although his passing seems so sudden and unexpected, countless cherished memories will forever stay in the hearts of all who knew and loved him.  Blessed be those memories.
