In Memory of Laird Dowgray – 7/24/54 – 8/18/17

With extreme sadness, the CASBA family sends our heartfelt sympathy to Debi Dowgray and the rest of the Dowgray family as we remember Laird as a man of passion for his work, music, golf and, most of all, his family. Laird Dowgray was an active supporter of CASBA for many years, representing Packaging Products Corporation, and always brought laughter and joy to our annual meetings.
