In Memorial

To all of our valued customers and friends, we regret to inform you of the passing of our company President and CEO, David G. Reed.

On 3/13/09 we not only lost the "Boss" but our loving Father and Father-in-law. As many of you may know from talking to Dave over these many years, he was a great and kind man and will be deeply missed.

Please take the time to read the obituary as originally posted that follows to learn a little more about him.

Again we will deeply miss him, but rest assured that you, our valued customer, will continue to receive the same commitment to excellence and individual care that Dave has given you through his 40 years of business dedications.

From all of us in the "Crandall" family, thank you, and as Dave would say, "here's to the next 100 years."
