Saying Goodbye to Incredible People

In business we meet incredible people.  We don't hang with them on weekends or celebrate holidays together, but yet they fill our lives with joy and make what we do, on a daily basis, worth doing.  So, when you lose people that enhance your life it hurts.  It makes you realize how precious life is and how we need to ensure we live to the best of our ability. 

 

Chuck Kroner was someone I met through the Material Handling Society New Jersey, back in the early 1990's.

Although there was a big age difference, we became very close and I enjoyed every minute of the time we spent together.  

Chuck Kroner

Chuck was our administrator for MHSNJ and did an incredible job keeping the society whole and moving forward.

 
We lost Chuck in March un-expectantly and it's hard to believe he's no longer around to guide us and offer his kind friendship.  He was one those people you could only hope to emulate.

  

Ironically, we lost another Chuck that I admired and greatly respected.

 

Chuck Inman was a customer that had an incredible style about him.  He ran a tight ship but did so with compassion and intelligence.
Chuck Inman
One of my first memories of Chuck was sitting in his conference room and, while waiting for him, admiring all the products they distribute which were displayed along the walls. 
 
Sadly, the meeting did not result in a sale but he gave me a lovely parting gift from the display that I still have today and cherish.
 
Over the years Chuck and I became very friendly and he was always a man of his word. A handshake with Chuck was better than any signed contract.
 
Ironically, he loved the One Pack monthly newsletter. Just a few weeks prior to his death, he was trying to get a team from his facility into the MHSNJ LogistiX Games. Something he read in this publication.
 
Chuck's death was senseless and makes me angry to think that he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.  For God's sake this man flew helicopters in Vietnam and actually had part of his hand blown off during a mission.  Yet it was a drunk driver that took his life and destroyed the lives of so many.

Nelson Wrapper
Still One of The Best Ideas, Ever
And Now They Have a Great New Video

  

 
There are few things in our industry that work as well as a Nelson Wrapper.
This simplistic idea really took off because it was a solution to so many challenges.
  
If you're tired of seeing your employees (or even you) walk backwards while wrapping loads and if you're tired of bending over, or reaching high to ensure the loads are wrapped correctly, then you will love the Nelson Wrapper.

  
It's Catchy and Just Plain Fun
