Feel free to share this post...

A celebration of life is planned for Al Penney, who passed away on May 28, 2018 in Naples, Florida. The gathering will take place on Sunday, June 24, 2018 at 1 p.m. at the Penney Ponds, one mile north of Bluewater Road on Bluff Road on the Old Mission Peninsula.

Everyone is welcome to stop by and share a story or memory of Al (of which we’re sure there are plenty!). Longtime OMP residents will recall Al on his bulldozer and earthmover in various locales around the neighborhood, and he was also a regular in the TC 250 and I-500 snowmobile race lineups in the 1970s.

A snowmobile accident during the TC 250 left him paralyzed, but with his zest for life, it only slowed him down momentarily.
