Saying Goodbye to Pete Seeger

This week we are remembering the incredible life and impact of folk musician Pete Seeger, who passed away on Monday at the age of 94.  Like many people, Crossroads’ founder Marc Mandel is a great admirer of Seeger, and the spirit of Pete’s music and work has been an inspiration for Crossroads Recycled Lumber and the nature of our operation.

Pete Seegar sang and fought for the rights of workers like the loggers and millhands whose labors we strive to honor by salvaging and reusing the old timbers they made.  He was an environmental activist in his music and in his daily life, something that is obviously a big part of what we do.

Along with playing great music of his own, Pete revived and popularized many old, beautiful folk songs.  He not only preserved history and honored the great works of the artists who created these songs, but he also gave the music new life and new meaning for a new generation.  On a more profound level, this is what we aim to do with our products at Crossroads.  This is why we feel like we are not JUST a lumber yard.

Thank you, Pete, for all that you did with your life.
