Vale Randall Davis

I received some very sad news last week that Randall Davis has passed away.

Randall was a very experienced and capable IT professional based in Melbourne Australia. He worked for IBM for many years;  co-authored several IBM Redbooks and fathered two wonderful boys with his wife Fiona.

Randalls funeral will be held in the Federation Chapel, Lilydale Memorial Park, 126-128 Victoria Rd, Lilydale on Wednesday Oct. 8, 2014, commencing at 11.15 am.

If you knew Randall and wish to pay your respects, then please attend.

    Yes very sad indeed. Randall had been over here in Raleigh on several residencies over the years to write Redbooks with me. Very skilled, hard working, and professional. I bet everyone in the Melbourne office is in shock.

    • Hi David,
      Thanks for your kind words. He always spoke very highly of you and of his time writing Redbooks. There were at least 200 people at the funeral, it was standing room only in the chapel, with a huge contingent of current and ex-IBMers. They closed the service by playing ‘In a Big Country’, one of Randles favourite songs.
