    Central Refrigerated Lines purchased the ailing truck line later that year, allowing its 1,800 employees to keep their jobs. The Dick Simon Trucking name disappeared when the company was later absorbed into Central’s brand.

    The story doesn’t end here

    Leveraging decades of experience in the family business, Lyn Simon ventured out on his own and in 2004, together with his wife Helen, founded Simon Transport. They were set on creating a company that treated each and every driver as part of the family instead of just a truck number.

    But the story never said what happened to Dick Simon. I guess he retired maybe.

    Scattered around Utah a driver can see old 40' worn and faded Dick Simon trailers from time to time.
