Richard D. (Dick) Inman was awarded the 2008 Len Stolk Memorial Special Acheivement Award. (The award is named after Stolk, Carlite's education and training manager in the 1990s, who died suddenly of a serious illness at a relatively young age earlier this decade.)

Inman started his career with Harmon Glass and was promoted to ultimately serve as executive vice president and chief operating officer during his 18 years there. He and his family moved to Seattle in 1993 when he became executive vice president for Trans America Glass and was instrumental in the acquisition of Novus Windshield Repair by TAG. He remained in Seattle until retiring and moving to Florida where he began his second act. He now owns Bob's Glass in Longwood, Fla., which he still operates today.

He was the first president of the Florida Glass Dealers Association and served on the NGA board of directors from 1980 to 1988. He has also chaired a varied of committees for the association.

"Dick could not be with us today," said NGA vice president Leo Cyr, who read a note from Inman to the group. "He and his wife Sandi have taken a very ill son on a cruise of the Caribbean."
