Announcement Date : Oct 15 , 1979

Once again, tragedy strikes the company as Rodger Henderson, current president and son of founder, prematurely dies at age 54.
Rod and Bruce, sons of Rodger, had already begun their career with the company and stepped in to fill void in management with third generation leadership to guide the company forward. Fortunately there were other experienced and long time managers in place to help in the successful continuation of business.
