LPG Mourns the Loss of its Longest Serving Team Member
August 6, 2010

George 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 sales representative.

"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.
