Randy went on to open Parkston Scrap and Recycling in 1990 and moved back to Yankton, SD with his family in 1999 to join the family business of Jensen’s Scrap Metal once again. Randy continued this line of work until his retirement.

Randy enjoyed fixing things, working on vehicles and equipment, and spending time with his family. His greatest joy was time spent in the Black Hills of South Dakota where the Jensen family had property and spent many a years four-wheeling, motorcycling, and enjoying the sound of the wind through the pine trees.
