 What can be said about Rick "larger than life" Jennings? I don't think there is a word in the dictionary that could describe him. Those of us close to him affectionately used the name "Rick Tum" because it sort of fit at times. Cool ran in the Jennings family because Mike, his brother, also had it.

Rick and I hung out together with the Banana Brothers and had lots of good times. Then there was the time in Phoenix when we had too much fun and were guests of the city for 30 days along with Dan Conlin and another fellow graduate from the Class of '70. Rich if you read this you know who you are. 

Rick died far too young. Had he lived he would have either been a very successful businessman or head of a "Mafia-type family" somewhere. I miss you Rick.
