This past weekend, Alps Wire Rope Corporation lost a dear friend and colleague, Randy Duenn, to prostate cancer. He worked most of his career in the wire rope business, starting with UNA-Anchor Wire Rope as Warehouse Manager, then Criterion Metals, and finally Alps Wire Rope Corporation as one of its key Customer Service personnel.
“Those who knew Randy can certainly attest to his fun-loving nature and positive attitude,” reflects Brad Benner, president of the Saint Charles, Illinois-based company. “He was always attuned to the things that mattered, and seldom wavered in exuding a positive outlook on everything. Anyone who got to know Randy always got to know him. He never held back in displaying his larger-than-life personality.”
Randy is survived by his wife, two daughters, and grandchildren. “He will also be missed by his second family here at Alps Wire Rope,” adds Benner. “If a man’s life is but a vapor, Randy was a giant cumulus cloud at sunset, large and full of color. You will be missed, big guy.”
