TMC Mourns the Passing of Founder, Harrold Annett

on Wednesday, March 3, 2021 in Company News


It is with deep sadness that we announce our founder and visionary leader, Harrold Annett, passed away Monday night due to unexpectedly severe complications from a recent illness. No words can adequately express the sadness and loss felt by the lives of everyone around him. Many of us have lost an inspiring mentor, a boss, and a friend.

Harrold was an exceptional leader, growing TMC Transportation from a one-truck operation to an industry leader. He had the heart of a saint and the roar of a lion; both of which were felt and respected by those who worked with him over the years. One hallmark of Harrold’s success is surrounding himself with exceptional people at every level. Through this deep-rooted philosophy, Harrold ensured that TMC would continue to thrive even in his absence.

Our TMC family will honor Harrold by endeavoring to meet our mission of providing extraordinary services through Harrold’s guiding principles: integrity, honesty, pride, and hard work. Through that, we will all work hard to achieve our motto of “Destination: Excellence”. Even though this motto is a path we pursue every day in this life, it really is only achievable in our next life, and Harrold last night, found the transition in that journey when he took the hand of our Lord and Savior.

On behalf of the entire TMC family, we extend our deepest sympathies to Harrold’s family, particularly his wife, children, and grandchildren, who meant the world to him. Please take a few minutes this week, to join us in praying for his family, who are grieving the loss of the great person who has provided so much strength and care to their lives over the years.
