Long Lost Friend... Rest in Peace.
  Yesterday we received a phone call from a long lost friend.  Ivan Hiepler called to inform me that a common friend Roger (RT) Tollackson had passed away.  Both Ivan and Roger drove truck for my father back in Echo.  After dad passed away both drove for me for a time.  Roger and Ivan drove for my dad in the 60’s and for me in early 70’s.  Roger passed away at the age of 82 and drove truck until he was 80.
  I started reminiscing about all the lives we all touch as we journey through life, all the friends we make and lose track of and the good will we have the opportunity spread.  The trucking industry, probably like many others, is a large industry but a small family.  People who have been trucking seem to become addicted to the fast pace, the challenges, people, the independence, the money and the trucks.  Whether it be vendors, drivers or technicians, people move from one segment to another or one company to another but always return to the trucking family. I am proud to be a part of this family which is independent, self-reliant, safe and absolutely necessary to the country’s economy.
  Farewell to Roger and all the other friends that have gone on before me.  I look forward to a visit and catch-up on your stories and travels.

 May God Bless you, make your roads smooth and your rigs never break.
