With deep sadness, Panther Industries announces the loss of Dal Alvarez, our very first employee and most recent Operations Manager.  Dal passed away suddenly on Saturday, May 16, 2015.

Dal started with Panther Industries in 2000, helping in all aspects of the fledgling business.  In time, Dal honed his skills as a technician, within R&D and sales and eventually management.  He helped grow the business to its current state and always strove to enrich relationships with vendors and distributors alike, all the while creating an engaging, creative and exciting atmosphere in which to work for his fellow employees.

Dal will be remembered as the problem solver, the confidant, and most importantly, a  friend.  His affable smile, his lightning fast wit, and his no-nonsense demeanor will be sorely missed on the production floor and over the occasional round of beers.  Panther Industries would like to thank all of our partners and vendors for their well-wishes and support during this difficult time for us.  In addition, we offer our condolences to Dal’s family and remind all how important it is to let those close to us in our lives know how much they imprint upon our lives.  We, here at Panther, are happy to have done so with Dal.

A faithful friend is a strong defense: and he that hath found him, hath found a treasure. Nothing can be compared to a faithful friend, and no weight of gold and silver is able to countervail the goodness of his fidelity. A faithful friend is the medicine of life and immortality. ~Ecclesiasticus, 6:14
