My name is Donny Beaver. When I was a boy, my grandfather, Pappy Tom, taught me to always love and protect God’s great outdoors. Any time he saw me working in my grandmother’s garden or fishing gleefully at Tipton Run or Bald Eagle Creek, he’d smile and say, “I love to see a hale and hardy boy.”
“HALE,” OF COURSE, MEANS HEALTHY AND FIT.
AND WE ALL KNOW ABOUT “HARDY.”
Pappy Tom’s guidance – on environmental protection and on staying hale and hardy – stuck with me throughout the years. As a college student, I started Beaver Professional Services, which provided heavy-duty industrial and hazardous dust cleanup services throughout North America and, eventually, Japan.
By 1985, I was Chairman & CEO of New Pig Corporation and had invented and patented the Pig® brand absorbent sock. Maybe you’ve used one?
