I am sad to see this. I grew up in Enon and was blessed to know the entire Jenkins and Delong family. Though Farley I was closest to, I have great memories of all of them. I remember a bunch of us working on Randall's 59 Chevrolet in the driveway at the Delong's house. Just one of thousands of (not so clear) memories... I am so sorry for your loss. I just saw this today... My condolences to Barbra and the entire family...Y'all are in my prayers.. Jim

So sorry Barb. I have not seen you and Randall since our days at school but just seeing his high school picture brought back so many fun memories! May your family and memories keep you blessed.

It was always a Pleasure to see Randall coming up our drive. Time really went by as the stories and tall tales flew.
We got to know his family through Him. And came to care for ALL of them. Good People! Our time with Randall was too short.
Patti and I look forward to that day we will greet him once again, and give him a big hug. We feel He and Barbara, are two of the Best People
we've ever known. God Bless them Both.

Randall was a very special friend to both of us. Truly one of a kind. We always enjoyed spending time with all the Jenkins family. Randall and Farley always enjoyed the Bluegrass music and supported the artists. He will truly be missed. Our deepest condolences to Barbara and the family. Thanks for the friendship through the years. RIP.

Randall and I both loved peach pie and Grandma LeMaster made the best! We argued over which of us was her favorite and each claimed she made the peach pie for just us! I loved his sense of humor and who couldn't love him! RIP dear cousin! ❤️

Sad day for the Miami Valley..... Randall was loved at a mllion local Bluegrass events. He and Farley (known so affectiontly as them Jenkins Boys ..) were known for total support of local music and artists before anyone knew who they were! Artists that now travel roads across this Country that Randall served and was so proud of. From regional bands to one, now playing with the likes of Diamond Rio, and National Bluegrass Bands.... all were equal in his book.... As a person that's produced shows of all sorts, I remembered him wherever I was, thus stating my favorite learning and teaching that, "The guy in the forth row (the fan) rules our industry!"
Rest in Peace our Brother. The Miami Valley 💓 s and will certainly miss it's #1 fan.....
Prayers to Barb and Family of Comfort as he advises our Heavenly Father on Bluegrass Music! (I bet he has quite a seat watching Bluegrass Jams now!!!)
