I worked with Thurman for many years and was his supervisor for some of that time. He was so dedicated to the the company and total dedication to satisfying the customer. I relied on Thurman so much during my time working with him, especially during annual inventory time. I was always amazed at Thurman’s memory. He could bring up topics from 15 years prior with great accuracy. I was so fortunate to have Thurman work for me during our time at the foundry. He was a great man and employee. May God bless his family.
