My First Computer was a Tandy
11/02/2010: Laurali Noteman
Randy Riddle recalled his first computer. It was a Tandy from Radio Shack. You would hook up your Tandy to the television and then store the information onto a cassette player. Wow, does that take you back?
Riddle was born in Kanab. He was raised in both Orderville and Kanab until the seventh grade. His family then relocated to Las Vegas. He did graduate from Valley High School, it was just located in Nevada.
Randy held a passion for computers from that very fist one, "I love computers." In 1999 Riddle attended the Henderson Computer Learning Center, in Henderson, Nevada. He completed a two year Network Administration course.
The red hills of southern Utah continued to call Randy. He moved back to Orderville to help his family develop the Quarter Circle H Ranch.
Riddle began working at Kane County Hospital as our Network Engineer, January 16, 2007. He not only takes care of our computers and our electronic security systems but handles the telephone systems as well. That is quite a plate full when you think of the information we acquire on a single patient or resident over their lifetime and the government regulations regarding privacy. Randy is pretty much at the bottom of the proverbial hill, where everything seems to settle. He handles it well, undoing the problem one phase at a time and then moving on.
Speaking of phone systems, Riddle received a cell phone text one day. The caller signature said it was from CB. The only one he could think that it might be was Christy at Mountain America. When he asked her about it she just laughed. Christy didn’t know the first thing about texting, in fact she didn’t own a cell phone.
That is how their courtship began. The couple shared the same interests and values, next came the marriage. Randy and Christy will be announcing the birth of their daughter (at least a girl is the best bet for now) in January. KCH wishes them the best in the years to come, and just to keep it real I would like to remind them that cute little bundle will one day be a teenager.
