Roger David Randall,
son of Curtis Clark and Virginia Mae Tollefson Randall, was born in Winona, MN on December 24, 1953. Roger grew up in St. Charles, MN.
Roger graduated from Morningside College in Sioux City, IA and found great success in the advertising and marketing industries. In Philadelphia, PA, he served as President and CEO of Farm Journal Magazine and later CEO of AgWeb Media Company.
In later years, a homecoming to Minnesota led Roger to the Miller Meester Advertising Agency and Penton/Informa Company, but most importantly, closer to extended family. Roger entered his well deserved retirement in December of 2020.
Roger married his college sweetheart Mary Barnard of Owatonna, MN on August 25, 1979. They are parents to Sara (Stephen) Randall Crosby and Clark Robinson Randall and grandparents to James Randall, Emmett William, and Lydia Mae Crosby. Roger is preceded in death by his parents and sister Cathy (Phil) Keller. He is survived by Mary (wife of 43 years), Sara, Clark, Stephen, James, Emmett, Lydia, sisters-in-law Peggy, Kay (Rod), nieces, nephews, cousins, other extended family, and his beloved kitty Myles. In addition, Roger was blessed to call many people friends, including high school, college, card club, and West Oak Community members.
Roger was passionate about history, architecture, travel, museums, reading, and his family. He will be immensely missed and forever remembered for his intelligence, kindness, thoughtfulness, humor, unprecedented organizational skills, and ability to always have a good time.
