A Sad Day

December 22, 2007 | Filed under: Miscellanous Articles,Uncategorized

Our thoughts, hearts, prayers, and deepest sympathy go out to the family of Ken Hendricks. Ken died Thursday evening this week as the result of injuries suffered in a tragic accident at his home. Ken changed the roofing industry forever 25 years ago when he established ABC Supply, now the largest roofing distributor in the world. Several years ago I had the opportunity to meet Ken at his corporate offices in Beloit, Wisconsin. Three things really struck me about Ken. One was that he was very much just an ordinary guy. The second was that he cared deeply about all of his team members. The third was that he was a man of vision.

This is a major industry loss. Again, here at Classic, our hearts go out to Ken’s family.
