Randy was born June 7, 1957, in Mitchell to Dan and Lila Baysinger. He attended Woonsocket School and then began his career raising watermelons alongside his parents, grandparents, siblings, cousins and friends.
He then moved to the Spearfish area to work for his cousin, Larry Mitchell, in his spraying service. During that time, he met Rochelle Deuschle, and they were married.

In 1988, Randy and Alecia moved back to the Baysinger farm three miles north of Woonsocket, where he started working the melon fields again with his family. He also worked for numerous family and friends when they needed help, especially during harvest time.
Hunting and fishing were his passion, especially with his children and grandchildren.
