It is with great sadness that we relay the news that we lost Fran Ellsworth, wife of former AERA Chairman Al Ellsworth. Fran was the epitome of hard work, class and fun. Her hard work and dedication to our industry was unparalleled. Fran and Al run Ellsworth Truck and Auto Machining Inc. in Anaheim, California. Successful in our industry while making friends and having fun, she was definitely one special lady. Our deepest condolences go out to Al and daughter Carrie and family.
