Randy is Ray's younger brother. Though they grew up together, the brothers were never particularly close; this is proven by the fact that Ray, usually open about his homosexuality, keeps it from Randy, even to having Cheryl Tunt pretend to be his wife. Randy was also unaware of Ray being an ISIS agent; he thought he was an interior decorator until Ray (and Cheryl)'s visit home in "Bloody Ferlin": Randy contacted Ray asking for his help, claiming a crooked Sheriff was going to throw him in jail and take over his farm. Actually, Randy was secretly a drug dealer (he preferred the term "drug farmer") and wanted help fighting off the Sheriff's planned raid of his farm. While at the farm, Randy also had sex with Cheryl, claiming he and his own wife (Janelle Gillette) had an open marriage. This seems to be true as she attempted to seduce Sterling. Ray was furious with his brother for lying about the drug farm and sleeping with Cheryl, whom Randy thought was Ray's wife. Though Randy is ultimately arrested after a shootout, Ray convinces him to turn his life around and start working in the coal mines instead, but Randy was revealed as mostly likely to die in prison for the level of his crimes (drug farming, distributing, and attempting to kill police officers) following his arrest, to which Ray claimed he was unlikely to visit him.
