Stuller's Dodson Dies in Accident
Darin Dodson, tools product manager at Stuller Inc. Lafayette, LA, died April 19, as the result of a traffic accident. Dodson, 41, suffered a heart attack at the scene and could not be revived en route to the hospital.
"Darin's positive outlook on life and his quiet but friendly outgoing personality made him a favorite of his industry associates and an inspiration to the staff he worked with," said Darrell Warren, business unit vice president of tools. "His move to Stuller in 2001 was a key asset in launching the tools business at Stuller."
"An important part of the Stuller organization has vanished, literally in the blink of an eye," added Matt Stuller, chairman and CEO. "Our hearts and prayers go out to Darin's family in this time of tremendous loss."
Dodson is survived by his wife, Jacqueline; two daughters, Ashley and Rachel; a son, Evan; and one granddaughter, Jayla; his mother, Joyce; three sisters and two brothers.
