RLF salutes the incredible team at STIHL, Inc. and Stan Crader, President, Crader Distributing Company- Blue Mountain Equipment (CDC-BME) for their support of RLF and our American heroes with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Stihl has donated over $67,000 to our mission and they continue to be a strong supporter.
Stan frequently quotes one of George Washington’s sayings, Facta Non Verba, (Deeds Not Words) and exemplifies that saying by supporting America’s heroes. Proceeds from Stan’s books have always been donated to charitable organizations. Through a mutual friend, Stan was introduced to Chrisanne Gordon and Resurrecting Lives. Moments into his first conversation with Chrisanne, hearing the passion in her voice, and learning of RLF’s prodigious mission on behalf of America’s warriors, the decision to join Resurrecting Lives Foundation Board seemed providential.
In addition to his success as a businessman, Stan is also an accomplished author. He authored the Colby series of books, which include The Bridge, Paperboy and The Longest Year. All of Stan’s literary works focus on stories of growing up in the 1960’s and highlight the sense the community and family values that existed at that time in rural America. He drew upon his own experiences growing up and working odd jobs to inspire his stories. All of the proceeds from the sale of these books go to support the mission of Resurrecting Lives Foundation. www.stancrader.com
RLF thanks Stan for his continuing dedication and support of our American warriors that have returned home with TBI. We salute him as an outstanding patriot and friend. On behalf of the RLF community, Thank You!
