RIP Richard.
Sympathies to family & friends.
I used to do a lot of business with Gerth & Gerth Ent / Gerth Transport back in the day. I think the first time I spoke with Keith Hopper who is on this board he was a dispatcher at Gerth.
I'm certain he will be missed.

RIP Richard.

You will be dearly missed by family, friends and industry members you truly where on of the good guys.

Yes he will be and it was a great place to work at as everyone was considered family and some of us continue to have that bond.

My first “real” job in the trucking industry was at Gerth Transport when I was going to university. The people were great – I had the opportunity to learn so much from a lot of great people – loading trailers on the dock, driving, and working in the office. Richard was very kind and generous to me – allowing me the opportunity to learn so many things. He paid me well and basically let me work when I wanted, and all the hours I wanted, because he knew that I had to pay for school. I will never forget the opportunities that he gave me.
