Remembering Larry Briggs
Two weeks ago we received word of long time Northwest Door employee Larry Briggs’ passing after a battle with cancer. Larry has been a delivery driver for Northwest Door for 16 years.
The following was written by Portland Distribution Center Manager – Ron Russell.
“Larry worked at NWD Portland for 16 years and drove 1,344,717 miles without a ticket or accident. Over that time, I can only remember him taking off one unscheduled time when he was sick. He drove in conditions that would make most people cry; ice, snow, rain, flooded roads, landslides, and fires. He was the kind of employee that would come in to help at the drop of a hat without any complaints, even when he had it scheduled off.
Our delivery customers, office staff and coworkers loved him and he was as much as a sales person as anyone who has ever worked for Northwest Door.
He will be missed, not for all this, but the fact that he was just a great guy.”
