Joe Metzger, 50, Loses Battle With Cancer
"There’s nothing quite like the strength you gain from family. You see, this isn’t the first time Metzgers has experienced a loss in our family and business. We’ve been down this road before when our father, Norbert Metzger, who started our company, passed away a few years ago. He had a mission and a vision that we all built upon together. With Joe’s passing, our family is now more determined than ever to see that vision through and take Metzgers even further up that Top 400 printers list.
"Joe would say, 'live every day to its fullest.' Be assured that we intend to do that in our own lives and with our company, as we move forward firing on all cylinders.
"All of us at Metzgers would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation for your kindness and unwavering loyalty. Thanks for your continued confidence in our family and the rest of the Metzgers team."
Mr. Metzger is survived by his wife, Dana; sons John, Mark and Kevin; and daughter Kelly. In addition to his brother Tom, he is survived by his mother, Patricia, and sisters Cathy Plante and Connie Flahie.
