He was born on July 20, 1946, in Sullivan, Indiana the son of Cleveland Earl Hobbs and Edith Angeline Thrasher Hobbs. Randy graduated from Sullivan High School in 1964. He married Kathy Lynn Norris on June 6, 1969. Randy was a veteran of the US Army Reserves. He was a member of the Rose Chapel United Methodist Church in Carlisle and The Sullivan Moose Lodge. Randy was a farmer and truck driver until retiring in 2011 from Bestway Trucking in Vincennes, Indiana. His handle/nickname was Hobby and Hobby Horse. After retiring, Randy owned and operated the Hobbs Produce Stand at the Sullivan Farmers Market. Randy enjoyed being in the outdoors, mushroom hunting, tending to his 5-acre garden, wood working, playing Euchre and Texas Hold’em. His greatest joy was spending time with his family and friends and attending his grandchildren’s sporting events.

Randy loved many and was loved by many more. He never met a stranger. He was a very kindhearted and giving man who would help anyone, even give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.
