Indiana Motor Truck Association (IMTA) Presents Eight Master Truck Driver Awards
Eight professional truck drivers for Genova Products, Inc., a plumbing and building materials manufacturer, were presented with the IMTA’s Certified Master Truck Driver (MTD) award at their annual safety meeting at the Ramada Inn on E. Washington Center Road. This brings the number of certified MTDs, from IMTA members, to 1,134. The MTD program recognizes the trucking industry’s top professional drivers who have compiled a career record of excellence through safety, professionalism, and service. Only 2% of CDL holders in Indiana will ever meet the qualifications to be certified as a Master Truck Driver. When you see the Master Truck Driver logo you know you are sharing the road with a driver who has an outstanding safety record.

To be nominated and subsequently certified as a Master Truck Driver an individual must have either one million accident-free miles or ten years of accident-free driving, be violation free for the past three years, have a record of educational or community service activities, and be employed by an
IMTA member company. These Master Truck Drivers represent 29.5 million miles and 219 years of safe drive on our Hoosier and national highways and byways. The IMTA commends them for the dedication to their profession and for Moving America Forward!

Richard “Rich” Crumback, 90, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on April 28, 2019, being reunited with his beloved wife Betty of 63 years. Rich born and grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan attending Godwin High School where he played basketball and baseball. After graduation, he proudly served his country in the army during the Korean War. Rich’s lifelong career has been in the automobile business where he started sweeping floors to eventually becoming an auto dealer for over 50 years. Baseball has always been one of his biggest passions. He was an avid Detroit Tiger fan, coached and managed a Stan Musial team for decades, and also served in many capacities within the National Amateur Baseball Federation (NABF). While summers were spent at the baseball park, fall was spent gearing up for the annual hunting trip to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. At the deer camp, the Woodtic, he spent time with close friends and family creating memories that he treasured. He was a proud parent and grandparent, instilling high standards and values. He always looked forward to family traditions and celebrations. Anybody who knew him would hear great stories, listen to his Eddy Arnold music, and enjoy his photography. We shall carry on his lessons of life, love, and strength. He is survived by his children, Jane (Jim) Childers, Mary Schalliol, Russell (DeAnna) Crumback, all of Fort Wayne; grandchildren, Scott (Ashina Singh) Childers, David (Amanda) Childers, Rachel (Matt) Costantino, Kelli Crumback, Claire (Ryan) Janas, Emma Crumback, Dennis (Denise) Schalliol and Tony (Michelle) Schalliol; great-grandchildren Samuel Childers, Eleanor Childers, and James Childers; and cherished nephews, nieces, friends, and grand dogs. He was preceded in death by his wife Betty in 2015; parents, Russell and Margaret (Brower) Crumback; sisters, Ellen Doyle and Alice Walford; son-in-law, Denny Schalliol. Funeral service is 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Harper’s Community Funeral Home, 740 State Road 930 East, New Haven. Pastor Kris McPherson officiating. Visitation is 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at the funeral home. Burial in Highland Park Cemetery, Fort Wayne.
