Gerald "Grumpy" Geurkink will be "Summerfest's Cleaner of the Year" when the annual event is held this year in Portland, Ore., Sept. 15-18.
"It is fitting that Dad was selected for this stellar award, because he was a real pioneer and innovator in the industry," John Geurkink, Gerald's son and business partner, said. "Our family has always been proud of his accomplishments, and we're so happy to see him recognized by the industry he worked in and has loved so long."
Summerfest is a grassroots gathering of cleaning industry professionals.
