It is with a very heavy heart that Jerry Bequette and I (Mike Primo) announce the passing of our business partner and longtime colleague, Russ Tweedy. Russ passed away on Monday evening May 29, 2017 after a relatively brief battle with cancer.
We’ve known, and worked with Russ since he entered the caster industry in August of 1984. Together, we opened Aarch Caster in June 2003.
Russ possessed a wealth of caster, wheel, equipment and applications knowledge. He loved helping people solve their equipment problems. He never stopped, day and night. He wanted to know what you did, and how he could help you do it, and he always did so with a laugh, a smile and his booming voice. You always knew when Russ was in the building!
While no one can replace him, the Aarch Caster family, including Jerry, Teresa, myself, and Russ’ son Kody will pick up Russ’ torch and continue to provide his customers with the excellent service they came to expect and appreciate from Russ.
Aarch Caster lost a close friend and a valuable team member. Russ is gone, but will never be forgotten.
1962 - 2017
