The CRMCA supports the continued expansion and improvement of the
ready mixed industry in the Carolinas through product promotion,
industry advocacy, education and technical services.
It is with deep sadness that we inform you of the passing of Bill Arent, the Executive Vice President of the Carolinas Ready Mixed Concrete Association. We have lost a dear friend, valued colleague and industry leader.
Bill was an integral part of the association and a great individual whose passion for the members and knowledge of the industry truly advanced our association during his 32 years of service. He will be dearly missed.
Bill joined the Carolinas Ready Mixed Concrete Association in the fall of 1984 as a lead engineer who actively contributed to the development of the Association’s Concrete Education Council and promotion forums. In 2001, he was elected Executive Vice President of the Association, leading the association’s promotion, advocacy and education activities, as well as providing senior executive leadership to the staff. Bill was instrumental in the fundraising and construction of the CRMCA’s Headquarters located in Charlotte, NC. Bill’s efforts were recognized by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association in 2012 as State Association of the Year. Bill was also nominated to the Board of Directors of the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association for two terms serving from 2004 through 2010. Under Bill’s leadership the CRMCA was awarded the Distinguished Achievement Award in 2006 for innovative leadership in promoting concrete throughout the Carolinas through education of the construction community.
In addition to his friendship, Bill will be remembered for his many great accomplishments while serving the CRMCA.
Each of us not only grieves at the passing of a tremendous individual but also for the loss his family suffers. The funeral will be held Friday, January 29, 2016 at 1pm at Raymer Kepner Funeral Home located at 16901 Old Statesville Road, Huntersville, NC 28078.
