Industry Representatives Remember Ostdiek
Several in the industry have shared fond memories of Diversified Glass Services president and chief executive officer Carl Ostdiek. Ostdiek, whose company also includes Henderson Glass, Safti Glass and Great Lakes Claims Service, passed away on Saturday, October 4, at his home in Michigan.
"Carl devoted his lifetime to our company, contributing more than 40 years of service," says Paul Bradford of Henderson Glass. "He found joy in his work and even more in the people and friendships that developed through the years. He took great pride in the company and its employees, and we have lost an extraordinary leader."
Guardian Glass director Paul Janisse describes Ostdiek as "an icon of ARG's golden age."
"He cared about our industry's standards and future for reasons beyond his own business interest," adds Janisse. "I am thankful to have called him a competitor and a friend."
