He was born Nov. 19, 1958, to Frank and Roberta (Sattler) Cajka in Oregon. After graduation, he married Donna Scherger April 19, 1985, in New Riegel.

He was preceded in death by both of his parents.
After graduation from Eastwood High School, he later attended Tiffin University on a baseball scholarship where he was credited for pitching a no hitter during his time there. Randall was an auditor for the State of Ohio for more than 20 years before retiring. He later would start a career as a sports official, refereeing numerous sports activities throughout the area. Randall’s memberships included Bethlehem Lutheran Church and the Ohio High School Athletic Association, just to name a few. He had a love of sports and a very enormous passion for kids, quietly helping the friends of his own children through some very rough times. Randall’s mantra was “no child gets left behind” and he lived what he believed. His family will remember him most for his very big heart and enduring smile.
