I only met Penny once very briefly, but benefited from his many talents on more than one occasion. He extended the life of my favorite comfy shoes with his leather working skills and made the best jerky I have ever had. He raised a wonderful, talented son whom I am thankful to call a friend. Rest in peace, Penny. My thoughts and prayers.
