A few things that I appreciated from Dave was the fact he never complained about anything, whether it be personal or business. Also, his loyalty to his team, friends and mostly his family.

Moncton, NB (PRWEB) October 17, 2012

It has been a sad two weeks for the Trailer Wizards' family as employees accepted the death of their Atlantic VP, Dave Skaarup. During a dream motorcycling trip in Mexico a tragic accident took Skaarup's life on October 3, 2012. He was 50 years old and left behind two adult children and an extended family, as well as many industry friends, customers and fellow 'Wizards' in the Moncton Trailer Wizards branch and beyond.

An out-pouring of grief followed the announcement of Skaarup's death. He was a loyal leader regarded for his honesty and integrity. Employees described him as the kind of boss that cared about every employee and didn't hesitate to pitch in and be a team player. "A few things that I appreciated from Dave was the fact he never complained about anything, whether it be personal or business. Also, his loyalty to his team, friends and mostly his family," says Daran Ultican, Senior Sales Representative in Moncton and long term friend and colleague of Dave Skaarup.

Trailer Wizards is committed to continuing Dave's legacy of a productive, safe and happy environment at the Moncton branch location.

The wake and funeral will take place at:

The visiting hours will be 2-4 and 7-9 on Saturday Oct. 2012 and the Funeral will take place from the same location at 1PM on Sunday Oct. 21, 2012.
