About the Foundation

Dave Fons was a devoted entrepreneur who embraced earthmoving and road construction as his lifelong passion, founding Fonson Inc in 1978 and leading it to success until 2014. Tragically, a fatal collision during a family visit in Florida ended his life abruptly, leaving behind his wife, children, and grandchildren. In his honor, the Dave Fons Memorial Fund for Truck Safety was established by his family, committed to preventing such tragedies and preserving his legacy.
