Grady L. Banner, Jr., 74, died on July 9.  Grady retired from the Dayton Wine Division after 38 years of service with Heidelberg Distributing.

→ Lorain District Wine Manager Val Thayer lost her mother Dolly Thayer on July 12th. She was 65 years old.

→ Heidelberg Toledo lost a beloved colleague on Saturday, July 11. Rocky Pitts was a 31-year employee of the company. To know Rocky was to love Rocky. Every Associate in the Toledo office had our own special relationship with him. Rocky’s ability to make each one of us laugh, especially when we were having a bad day will be truly missed. He was a simple man who lead a simple life, but his smile and sense of humor were grandiose. Rocky never met a stranger, if you met him once he’d remember you and you’d remember him! Rest easy friend.


For those Associates who are going through a rough time with medical or other personal challenges, your co-workers and colleagues are thinking of you and sending you best wishes.
