Randal Ryan Hohbein was born on October 13, 1972 in Bismarck, North Dakota to Sidney and Karen (Hickel) Hohbein. He grew up in Mandan, North Dakota where he Graduated from Mandan High School. He attended North Dakota State University and was in the Army ROTC and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant upon graduating. He ended his military career as a Captain in 2001. He was united in marriage to Lisa Johnson on October 17, 1998 in Fergus Falls, Minnesota. He treasured spending time with his daughters, Rilee and Makenna, who he always told that he loved them to the moon and back. Randy was an avid sports fan who could talk sports with anyone, but golf was his passion. He loved the Dallas Cowboys since he was a little boy, and one might say he had a man-crush on Troy Aikman. Some of Randy’s favorite things:
*Watching his girls play sports
*Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford another man-crush)
*The Foo Fighters (Dave Grohl -another man-crush)
Randy and his friends had a wicked sense of humor and many people were the recipients of practical jokes concocted in the basement of his mother’s house. Randy was a loving, compassionate father, husband, son, brother and friend. He was loved by many and will be missed by all.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Lisa Hohbein, daughters, Rilee Fern Hohbein and Makenna Karen Hohbein of Rice, MN; mother, Karen Regner of Rice, MN; father, Sid (Dixie) of Roseburg, OR; sisters, Robyn (Terry) McDonald of Jamestown, ND, and Rhonda Nauman of Chippewa Falls, WI; brothers Aaron (Julie) of Auburn, CA and Robb of Pahrump, NV and many friends and relatives.
He was preceded in death by his father-in-law, David Johnson, brother-in-law, Jeff Nauman and his maternal and paternal grandparents.
