My friend Phil
I just read your article on LaRusse Distributing (“Everything must go,” Nov. 30).
I want to say that one of the greatest opportunities in my life is having Phil LaRusse as my friend.
In a world where “selfless” is hardly a recognizable word, there is Phil LaRusse.
He instituted a turkey dinner for those in need before it was fashionable even for charitable organizations. He developed the LaRusse library golf tournament, which has raised funds for our community libraries. Even when the floodwaters rampaged through his facility, he still managed to get water shipped in for those in need.
When ATI was on strike and men were fearful they couldn't provide for their families, he donated beverages for the men on the line. I could go on and on and, quite frankly, those are just things people saw. Most of his generosity is anonymous.
He has sold his business, but if I know Phil, the best is yet to come.
