    I knew Navnit since 1989 when he began work at Jackrabbit. He was always a quiet, calm influence on the crazy crew! He knew his job inside out and seemed to live what he did. We were like family. Some disagreements but all in all a family. He and his lovely wife, Louise, came to every Jackrabbit function. He was always so proud of his sons and in turn his grandchildren. He was sweet and kind to my own children that I brought to Jackrabbit regularly. They always talked him out of his lunch, eating the crackers and cookies he so willingly shared. We will always remember him with great fondness and will miss him greatly. The world is a little sadder today. Goodbye Navnit.
