Kevin grew up on a farm north of Emmetsburg, Iowa. Following his high school graduation he attended South Dakota State University (SDSU) pursuing a degree in pharmacy. It was in college that he met now wife, Marnee 'Schwab', a Sleepy Eye native. The two married in 1999 and are now parents to 6 wonderful children! Kevin received his Pharm.D. from SDSU in 2000 and began working for Randy's Family Drug & Gift thereafter. Kevin says the best part about being a pharmacist is the relationship he has with the patients.
Samantha grew up in Woodbury, Minnesota. After graduating from high school in 2001, she attended Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD on a volleyball scholarship. In 2002, she transferred to the University of Minnesota-Duluth, where she met her future husband Chad Armbruster, to pursue a degree in biochemistry. After finishing college in Duluth, she earned her Pharmacy Doctorate (PharmD) in 2009 from the University of Minnesota. The two married shortly after graduation.
Life changed dramatically after learning of a loved one’s illness in early June 2012. Two weeks later, Sleepy Eye, MN became their new home. Sam started work as a pharmacist to alleviate her father in-law, Randy, and Chad started to learn and take over the multifaceted job of his mother, Roxanne.
Sam and Chad are very proud to have officially put down Sleepy Eye roots by building a home in 2014 with their children Alexander, Tessa, and Brooke. It was a complete leap of faith to start a new life in Sleepy Eye but they now could not imagine a better place to raise a family or a better community to be a part of!
