HR Strange But True!
April 28, 2009

Employers need employees who go that extra mile, especially during these difficult economic times. Chuck P. Dimmick is one such employee, plugging away for his employer even after he had died.

Dimmick was just 50 years old when he died suddenly while attending a NASCAR race in California earlier this month. If the entries in the online guest book are any indication, Dimmick was a dedicated employee who was quite a character.

As the director of marketing at the Lund Cadillac Group, Dimmick worked in an industry that is one of the hardest hit in this recession. The auto industry is trying a variety of ways to increase sales, but we think whoever wrote Dimmick's obituary came up with the most unusual one yet.

As you can see in the obituary below, which appeared in the Arizona Republic, Dimmick was still working, at least in spirit, for the Lund Cadillac Group after he died.

Chuck P. Dimmick, born December 29, 1958 in Riverside, CA passed away suddenly on April 18, 2009 while attending a NASCAR race to watch his favorite driver, Jeff Gordon. Chuck was the loving husband of Kristen and devoted father of Dillon. Chuck was the Director of Marketing for the Lund Cadillac Group. We are sure he would still want all to know that 0.9% financing is still available on all New 2008 Hummer H2's. A mass celebrating Chuck's life will be held at 11:00 AM on Friday, April 24th at St. Patrick's Church - 10815 N. 84th St. Scottsdale, AZ. Arrangements handled by Hansen Desert Hill Mortuary 480-991-5800. In Lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Dillon Dimmick Donation Fund at any Bank of America.
