Dave Sutter, our former long-time Vice President of Engineering, passed away a few days ago at the age of 85, in his home of Cape Porpoise Maine.
Dave was an MIT graduate, highly intelligent, and a real force for innovation at Hussey Seating in the 1960's and 1970's and into the 1980's. He was responsible for innovations such as automated chair platforms, the Sentinel chair line, and advances in telescopic seating capabilities. He insisted on safety in our products, which has long been a hallmark of our Company.
Dave certainly left his mark here, and in his community, and will be missed by many.
