In Memoriam:

Richard Kevin “Catfish” Jackson
EnviroVac’s Founder, President, and Chief Executive Officer

We, the Board of Directors of EnviroVac, are profoundly sad to report that our colleague, friend, and brother, Kevin, has passed away. On behalf of the entire EnviroVac Family we extend to his wonderful wife, Elizabeth (Libby), and their children and grandchildren our condolences and, also, our thanks for sharing Kevin with us all these wonderful years.

EnviroVac has not just lost a great leader, the State of Georgia and the City of Savannah have lost their greatest champion, and the Georgia Bulldogs their biggest fan. Kevin lived every day to its fullest. He accomplished in a single day what others didn’t do in a month. He was a friend and benefactor to charities too numerous to mention here, and he was an avid sportsman committed to the preservation of Georgia’s natural resources for the enjoyment of generations to come.

Kevin believed in beginning every day with a prayer, especially one for the safety of EnviroVac’s employees and its customers. His singular goal was that every day, every employee was thoroughly trained and always safe, and at the end of every workday all of them went home safely to their families. Kevin’s legacy and our commitment to EnviroVac’s employees and our customers now continues with the leadership of Fred Bishop, Joe Gill, and the experienced team that Kevin so successfully built. Our goal at EnviroVac remains as Kevin said — and he did every day of his phenomenal career:

“Always be your brother’s keeper.”

Rest in peace, Kevin. Until we meet again.

Michael Zawalski, Chairman of the Board
