    I was saddened today to learn of Randy’s passing. He was definitely my favorite co-worker at Avco. He had the best sense of humor and was the best practical joker I ever knew. I really enjoyed being a speaker at his retirement party;he gave me plenty of material. He will be missed. The Jennings family must be proud of their Dad. He was a Hell of a guy!
