Doug Amundson, widely known for his tireless efforts in promoting the needs of installers through the Certified Floorcovering Installers organization, died July 3 in South Dakota following a long illness. He was 60.
Amundson was the second president of
CFI and a founding member, making him one of the first in the industry to
champion certification for installers. He remained active in the CFI as an
executive board member, and was honored with the organization’s Charlie Gress
Award for outstanding service and promotion of installation in 1996.
“No one cared more for CFI than Doug,”
remembers CFI CEO Jim Walker. “He wanted flooring installers to be recognized
for their true value, knowledge and skill.”
A funeral is being planned for
next week through Rude’s Funeral Home in Brookings, S.D. No further information
was available at press time.
