Dear NASPD Members – The NASPD lost a dear friend this week, Helen Mocker mother of NASPD members John and Jim Mocker (Lally Pipe & Tube) passed away on Monday April 6. For years Helen was a regular attendee at many of our conferences and conventions often accompanied by her friend Skeets Aronson. Helen enjoyed her association with the NASPD and especially the many friends she made over the years.
Many of you may remember her debut to the NASPD when she was the ‘surprise’ presenter of the Knowles-Rubenstein Award to her son John at the New Orleans convention in 2003. As John told me it was one of the 2 times in his life he was truly surprised.
We will miss her and we extend our deepest sympathies to the entire Mocker family. The Obituary was provided by the family which further highlights a life well lived by a woman much loved.
