Randy was born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on October 31, 1954 to Lloyd and Virginia Phillippe. Randy was a machinist and millwright for most of his life. He began racing flat track motorcycles in his teenage years, winning many trophies and winning the Grand National Championship, and remained an avid fan for the rest of his life. The injuries sustained in his racing years never stopped his love for the sport.
In his spare time, Randy loved to customize cars and work on motorcycles, always wanting to learn and take on new challenges and methods. Randy loved to travel and meet new people that had similar interests to share stories with and often help others with their projects.
