Making Transportation Progress in the 21st Century
Dunphy recalls her last interview with Woolpert, which she says centered on customer service. During that interview he shared his company’s simple philosophy: Yes, we will, as its response to serving its customers.
“It was this type of innovation that led Graniterock, under Bruce’s leadership, to receive the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, Dunphy says. “Bruce [Woolpert] had a knack for bringing out the best in his company, his industry, and his community. Will we miss his passion for improving each? Yes, we will.”
Services were held for Woolpert on June 30 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Saratoga, Calif. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested contributions to the Woolpert Family Foundation, to continue Woolpert’s legacy in educational programs. Contributions may be sent to P.O. Box 50001, c/o Janice Shaffer, Watsonville, CA 95077.
