In Memoriam: Craig Olmstead
Craig Olmstead, a member of the Ennis, Inc. national sales team representing the Rocky Mountain region, passed away on December 18. He was 68 years old. Ennis, Inc. is the parent company of several industry suppliers, including Folder Express (PPAI 354129, S1), Independent Folders (PPAI 111993, S2) and Admore, Inc. (PPAI 111144, S10).
Olmstead, born in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina, moved to Colorado in 1975. He worked as a pressman at Woehrmeyer Business Forms and later at Denver Forms, where he eventually rose to vice president of manufacturing. He joined Adams McClure and Ennis in 1998, where he served as regional sales manager.
“During his more than 40 years in the printing industry Craig held many jobs, but for the last nine years his hard work, determination, and, most, importantly his love of working for his customers allowed Ennis of Colorado to become the company it is today. I know Craig loved his job and with the outpouring of calls and visits before his death, I hope he got to feel how much he meant to those he impacted,” says Mike Allen, general manager of Ennis of Colorado.
Outside of the office, Olmstead enjoyed skiing, golf, the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers.
Olmstead is survived by his wife Cindy, grandchildren Jonah, Justice, Julia, Josiah and Grace; brother Ronnie White and his wife Faye, sister Robin Wilholt and her husband Gordon; and mother Susan Lewter, along with many other relatives and friends.
A memorial service was held for Olmstead on December 27 at Horan & McConaty Funeral Home in Centennial, Colorado.
