It is with sadness that we report the recent passing of Dennis Bradley, a Pallmann territory manager. Dennis passed away peacefully with family by his side after a short but courageous battle with cancer.
Dennis began his career with the Pallmann brand in 2016 after 25 plus years in the hardwood floor industry working in various roles ranging from contracting, sales, and training. An avid enthusiast of cooking BBQ, Dennis was always in pursuit of the “perfect cook.” Constantly observing, learning, asking others for input on how to achieve this personal milestone. Along the journey he was always willing to share his own knowledge and passion of BBQ to help others achieve their own “perfect cook.” Dennis took the passion of striving for excellence into his daily life and wood floor industry sharing with contractor’s tips, techniques, and methods learned along the travels throughout his region; in hopes of bettering distributors, contractors, and the wood floor industry.
Dennis would never back down from a healthy discussion and always shared his opinions in a respectful manner that was designed to challenge us all to strive for excellence. It was the quiet and compassionate side of Dennis however that left an impression on many throughout the years. After learning that one of his customers was hit by a devastating Tornado, Dennis and his wife quietly packed up a trailer full of water, chainsaws, and other supplies showing up unannounced on the doorstep of the customer with an outstretched hand and a full heart.
Whether it was BBQ spices showing up randomly in the mail as a gift, an invitation to go fishing, or simply a helping hand on a jobsite, Dennis had a selfless heart that touched many and will be deeply missed by all.
