2020 November 9th: Tom Dyer

Tom's wife Kelly shared the following on Facebook.  Tom Dyer passed away this afternoon, November 9th from multiple COVID induced strokes.  Due to COVID restrictions a memorial service will be held at a later date.  Tom is one of over 238,000 Americans that have died in the United States during the pandemic.  Please wear a mask, social distance and protect those more fragile than yourself.  I had 32 years as Tom's wife and I am grateful for "almost" every single day.  If you know Tom that statement should make you smile!  If you are so inclined, please send a card to Eric.  He has many milestones ahead that he will face without his dad; Eric Dyer, 7780 Cardinal Cove North, Indianapolis, IN 46256

2020 November 4th: Doug Fetzer

It is with great sadness that I let you know that a good friend, Doug Fetzer, just passed away.  He has been battling Alzeimers for sometime and this tragic illness finally took it’s toll.  Doug was a great friend in our business.  He was a true friend and a quiet man whose sense of humor could be seen in his sly smile.  An avid golfer and a great companion to all in the dog world, he will be greatly missed.  There will not be an obituary published.  RIP Doug
