Building a Legacy

Nov 1, 2020 | Industry

When Vince Edivan, ARA’s Director of Member Relations, visited Daurio Auto Truck in Pueblo, CO, which was founded in 1957 as a service station and expanded into a towing and salvage company in 1970, he was shown this original photo of the Daurio’s team. It was pre-arranged to have all three on site the day of Edivan’s visit and they recreated the legacy photo. The top and bottom image are Tony Vigil, left, who started with Dario’s in 1957, Phil Lacrue, center, who came on sometime around 1966, and John A. Daurio, right. All three are retired but remain friends.

Daurio’s next generation leadership poses with their patriarch and continues to run the family operation with pride.
From left to right: Greg, General Manager – Nick’s son and newest member of the family business; Nick, President – and new member of the ARA Executive Committee; John, retired founder – and father to Nick and Mike; and Mike, Vice President – whose two daughters are pursuing careers outside of the business.
