Trish Randolph first laid eyes on her husband Gary 33 years ago, in Weatherford, America. She was working as a clerk in a clothing store, and he was in the early stages of his construction career, remodeling a section of the store. She’s from Hammon, and he hails from Boise City.
“On our first date, we came to Oklahoma City and went to the White House restaurant, on Grand,” Gary remembers. Trish is all smiles as the pair reminisces about their courtship. “I sure thought he was cute,” she adds. A year later they were married, blending their families, and after a couple more years they moved to Edmond. Today, they have four children and 10 grandchildren. Almost. The tenth is due in October.
Gary is a master builder, having plied his trade for 44 years, and his successful company bears his name. “Master builders have been around for 5,000 years,” Gary says. “I see the house long before it’s built.” Being a master builder means you take a project from design to completion. You don’t hand a project off to someone else, so there’s no room for misinterpretation of plans or the vision.
