Passing of Art Randall

Printer-friendly version


Sad word this week: the passing of Art Randall, former sales exec at McAuto. Anyone who worked at McDonnell-Douglas couldn't fail but remember Art's great sense of humor, fiercely competitive spirit in the HIS sales world, and indomitable leadership style. In that primarily engineering-oriented aerospace firm, sales was not given as high priority as it deserved, and Art fought the good fight during his decades there, giving the ex-IBM sales crowd at rival SMS a run for their (your?) money. What I remember most about Art was his incredible diverse talents: he could repair clocks, restore old cars, write articles on ANY subject in minutes, and give speeches that held audiences enthralled. A larger-than life, Protean charmer, Art will be sorely missed. Condolences to his many friends and family Â

A fund is being set up in Art;s memory to fight the cancer that took him. Checks should go to "USSVCF" % "The Art Randall Scholarship Fund" and sent to the following address:
