Ray Ivy

A fifth-generation Texan and a quintessential member of the Greatest Generation, Ray Ivy consistently demonstrated a strong reputation for industry, integrity, and community-building. Breaking horses in the lean years of the 1930s taught him the necessity and value of hard work, and service as a Sergeant in the early forties honed his self-confidence and leadership. After returning home, Ray built roads for the highway department, where his insight and determination were quickly recognized. Thereafter, he supervised infrastructure development projects across the county.

Throughout his career, Ray stayed connected to the values he had learned in his youth. His concern for the well-being of others was readily apparent in his daily life. Building homes for others, providing medication for those who had none, and serving in his local congregation were just some of the hallmarks of his legacy of trust and respect in communities across West Texas.

Herman Blau

Even from his early years on a sheep ranch in Kansas, Herman Blau built his life around hard work and a commitment to his community. As a result of the famine and crop failures in that region, he relocated to Arizona where he began anew with a tent and four acres.

Through several ventures, some more successful than others, he was consistently recognized as an exceptional business partner, developing a reputation of reliability and expertise that won the trust of customers and business partners alike. Because of this, he was recruited to join a growing plumbing services company, where he ultimately assumed responsibility for all business operations.

Herman created success through diligent and purposeful effort, and he utilized that success to aid those around him. Many times, when a client's bill came due, he gently declined payment from a customer when he felt that it would be more beneficial to build up those around him. Viewing his achievements as a means and not an end, he ensured that his vision was always focused on benefiting his community, his neighbors, and his family.
