Randy is the son of Betty and Dale Krause of East Greenville Pa. He was employed by the Pa Dept. of Revenue-Bureau of Audits for 25 years, retiring in February of 2015.

            "Randy Bear" was a 1985 graduate of Upper Perk High School. At graduation, he received the Congressmen's Medal of Merit Award for Outstanding Citizenship. He was proud of this award as he was for the medal he received for completing the Philadelphia Marathon in 2000. He received a BSBA (Accounting) from Shippensburg University in 1989.

He was a lifetime member of Checkered Flag Fan Club. "Coach Krause" served as a coach, administrator, and team manager for various youth teams and organizations. He was proud of his players and stayed in contact with many of them until his passing always encouraging them to do well in school and to follow their passions.

            "Dad's" greatest joy was watching his son Zach play sports, especially baseball. Randy was grateful that he could travel to Florida in March to see his son play his first college baseball game for Albright College.  Randy was a life-long Chicago Bears fan, and an avid fan of the Philadelphia Phillies and all Allentown Central Catholic Sports Teams.
