It is with deep sadness to announce that Tom Stoddard, former Vice President of Speakman Company, has passed away on April 8th, 2014 at the age of 102.
Tom began his career with Speakman in 1928 at the age of 16 to help his family survive the Great Depression. During his tenure, he made his way through the ranks from errand boy, to assistant works manager, to Vice President of the company. Today, his now legendary 80-year career is forever embedded in the pages of the Guinness Book of World Records for having “worked longer with the same company than anyone else ever anywhere.”
“Tommy was an inspiration in the way he lived his life,” says Robert Cook, President/CEO of Speakman. “He was one of the most positive people we have ever known. God bless you Tommy.”
