I got to work with Richard Renchard as his Tension Specialist for many years. The Vulture always seem to have an "open" slot when it came my turn to select a shift for the year. I got to know him pretty well. We had our clashes, as sure some of us all did when working together year after year, but I would always seem to find my way back to his crew. His favorite saying "I'm going to shoot myself" was always a way of knowing he was around. I know I might not have been the easiest guy to work with at times, but I like to think Vulture and I worked well together. The best year we had was when Vulture got the privilege(torture) of working with the bottom of the seniority board.

I remember talking to Richard a few years back after we both had left the times. He laugh at some of the things that happened we when worked at the Times, a lot better than when it happened at work. My condolences to the Renchard Family.
