David Harry Randt was born June 7, 1951, in Willmar, the son of Harry and Ruth (Boike) Randt. He was baptized June 17, 1951, by the Rev. Norbert Augst at Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Clara City, and was confirmed into faith on April 11, 1965, by the Rev. Otto Misch, at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Plato. He graduated from Glencoe High School in 1969.
David Randt and Miriam (Wroge) were united in marriage June 16, 1974, by the Rev. Bert Klein at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Plato. The Lord blessed them with three children, Deb, Andrea and Tim. They built their marriage on the foundation of Christ’s love, and shared over 42 years of marriage together.
Mr. Randt worked as the highway maintenance superintendent for the highway departments in McLeod and Carver counties. As a faithful servant of the Lord, he was an active and dedicated member of First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Glencoe, where he also served as a deacon. He served his community as an active and proud member of the Glencoe Fire Department for 20 years.
Mr. Randt had a servant heart, always willing to lend a helping hand and putting others’ needs before his own. He was passionate about spending time outdoors hunting or fishing, always with a family member or a friend at his side. Always quick to laugh, he truly treasured his time visiting and socializing with others.
During his early retirement years, he cherished time with family, especially his six grandchildren, at the cabin near Star Lake. He patiently baited hooks, offered four-wheeler and boat rides, and enjoyed time around the bonfire.
He is survived by his wife, Miriam Randt of Glencoe; children and their spouses, Deb and Matthew Butler of Waconia, Andrea and Scott Belseth of Minnetonka and Tim and Stephanie Randt of Dent; grandchildren, Brody, Benjamin and Oliver Butler and Adella, Micah and Tommy Belseth; mother, Ruth Randt of Glencoe; mother-in-law, Esther Wroge of Glencoe; siblings, Carol (Aaron) Alsleben of Glencoe, Janice (Larry) Henning of Plato, Gary (Becky) Randt of Buffalo, Sharon Fox of Glencoe, Chuck (Linda) Randt of Osakis, Jane Randt of Prior Lake and Darryl Randt of Madison Lake; sisters-in-law, Cindy Randt of Chaska and Carolyn Raedeke of Burnsville; brothers-in-law, Wally (Lynn) Wroge of Norwood Young America and Randy (Mary Lou) Wroge of Norwood Young America; nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.
He was preceded in death by his father, Harry Randt; father-in-law, Herbert Wroge; and brother, Randy Randt.
