With our Condolences

TCRA wishes to express their condolences on the passing of David Perry

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of David Perry.  Dave began working for Raybestos in 1980, riding his bicycle to work, and he transitioned through the ranks until he resigned to pursue other ventures in April of 2009.  He pioneered coated torque converter friction rings for the aftermarket, establishing Raybestos as the leading supplier in the converter reman industry.  As Business Development Manager, Dave found business in other markets such as the motorcycle, golf cart, and ATV industry.

Dave was an avid outdoorsman and motorcycle enthusiast.  He liked things tidy, enjoyed going to races, would always provide the facts, and was never one to “sugar coat” a conversation.  Customers came to appreciate his straightforward approach and knew they could come to him with a question or concern, knowing it would receive prompt attention.

R.I.P. David Perry (May 11, 1957-June 29, 2010)
