Colleagues, Community Members, and Friends:
It is with great sorrow that we mourn the loss of our long-time board member, Richard “Dick” Larochelle.
For over 20 years we have had the pleasure of having Dick as a colleague, partner and leader in our organization. His business acumen, loyal service, and outstanding council were topped only by his honesty, integrity, and friendship to this company and the Hussey Family. Together with the Company’s leadership, Dick’s extensive international experience made him a valued contributor to Hussey’s successful growth into the $100MM global manufacturer that it is today.
In a recent interview before his board retirement Dick said, “If I was proud of one thing, it would be the ability of all the stakeholders to work together to get through difficult times and come together.” We will be mindful of Dick’s wisdom today while we work together through this period of grief.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Dick’s wife Jum, and their entire family during this difficult time.
