Donald “Don” Henry George Scheffler 1957 — 2019
On August 3rd 2019 we lost a good friend and valued member of our family at Lucas Refrigerated Transport.
Don Scheffler suddenly passed away at his home while performing a maintenance task on his truck, something that was routine for him and one of his many strengths. His attention to detail and level of professionalism with his own, and our equipment were only parts of what made him an exemplary operator. His ability to deal with co-workers, suppliers and customers were an even larger component of his character. Although he had only worked with us for 2 years, a few of us were lucky enough to have known Don for decades, and in some cases all the way back to the days Kenbrent Refrigerated Express. Don will be fondly remembered and sorely missed.
His unit #36 will be respectfully retired.
