Former AGSC member Frank Levesque passed away on August 23 at the age of 72.
Frank spent his career devoted to training and safety. He most recently served as the director of product development and technical services at Glass Doctor University. He retired in June 2015 after more than five decades in the auto glass industry and is quoted in glassBYTES.com as saying he was looking forward to a “quiet life of fishing.”
In the 2015 glassBYTES.com article, Frank also predicted a change coming to the auto glass industry. “Once we put a windshield in the vehicle, often the vehicle needs to go back to the dealership to be recalibrated. One day, the glass industry will have a device so we can make the recalibrations before giving the vehicle back to the customer.”
In his 51 years in the industry, beginning at the age of 15, Frank worked for several companies including Soule Glass, Demers Plate Glass, Portland Glass, Equalizer, Fein Power Tools, Pilkington and Glass Doctor. He also served on multiple AGSC committees providing valuable expertise to AGSC in the development of the ANSI/AGSC/AGRSS Standard and the AGSC technician certification tests.
Frank is survived by his wife of more than 20 years, Crystal. He was known for his sense of humor and his kind and generous spirit and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. To read more about Frank, CLICK HERE and HERE.
