Throughout our many years of doing business, there have been many who have contributed to making D&L the success it is today; we truly believe OUR PEOPLE are the main reason D&L has been in business since 1955. Their years of dedication, leadership, and hard work have been the backbone of this corporation.

A few of the most important D&L employees from our past are:

  • Debra Brackett Disney, a partial owner of D&L and our former Executive Vice President, retired in 2016. Deb was a dedicated leader at D&L for 42 years.
  • Archie Link, who passed away in February 2005, was one of the original owners of D&L and served the company for over 41 years as our Purchasing Agent and morale booster.
  • Jerry Lingerfelt, who retired in 2002, was our Purchasing Agent and Operations Manager. Jerry was a mentor that inspired others to excel. He was a dedicated employee for over 35 years.
  • Parks McClure, who passed away in 2001, was our Chief Financial Officer for over 15 years. He was essential in helping us through some very rough years and was instrumental in our tremendous growth during the 1980-1990's.
