LPG Mourns the Loss of its Longest Serving
August 6, 2010
D. "Dubby" Carrico, 80, who spent more than 50 years with
Louisville Plate Glass (LPG) in Louisville, Ky., passed away peacefully
on July 16, 2010. Carrico was a retired sales manager with LPG and
also a member of St. Thomas More Catholic Church and a Flaget Alumni.
Carrico joined LPG in September 1955. According to a company announcement,
"given the hundreds of people who have served LPG since 1911
Dubby was the individual with the most years as a member of the
LPG team." He had served in a variety of roles for the company,
including truck driver, glass cutter, warehouse manager and territory
"Dube was the longest serving member of the LPG team, having
joined us in 1955, five and a half decades ago," stated Bill
Stone, LPG president. "He will be missed by customers, co-workers,
family and friends. Dubby rose from glass cutter to sales manager
in an outstanding career in the glass industry. If there is a first-class
reservation in Heaven, the man above has one waiting for Dubby."
Carrico was preceded in death by his wife, Beverly Ann Carrico
and is survived by his daughters, Cynthia Brewer (Mike) and Shannon
Barnett; sons, George D. Carrico III, Christopher Carrico (Tracy),
Scott A. Carrico (Rodney) and Mark D. Carrico (Chrissy); a sister,
Patricia Murphy (Edward); 13 grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.
Expressions of sympathy should be made to the Multiple Sclerosis
Society or the Flaget Alumni Association.
