Randy Stender


Randy Stender BA ’78 retired last December after a 43-and-a-half-year career with Merrill Lynch. After starting with them in Portland in 1979, he and his wife, Susanne, moved to Eugene, Oregon, in 1983. Stender remained there with the company in various capacities, including management. His wealth management practice was transferred to two of his children, son Sam Stender BA ’09 and daughter Sally. Randy and Susanne have spent a good part of their retirement traveling to various locales, including Hawai’i, Arizona, Alaska, Greece, and Turkey. They plan to see the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC in person in November. Many more trips are on their to-do list. When not traveling, they love spending time with their four grandkids.
