Montgomery Entities gifts the estate of long-time, award-winning driver
Posted: February 9, 2022
Montgomery Entities is remembering professional driver Shane Macon's life by providing support to his family through the sale of his Peterbilt truck. Macon, one of the first employees at RM Logistics, one of the Montgomery transportation companies, passed away in September 2021.
In 2018, Macon was named RM Logistics Driver of the Year and as part of that award, he received a brand new 2019 Peterbilt 389, which he described as his “pride and joy”. After Macon’s death, the Montgomery companies paid tribute to his life with a final ride from their terminal to Forest Crest Cemetery in Birmingham, Ala., where he was laid to rest. Macon’s RM Logistics Driver of the Year Peterbilt led the procession, driven by his dear friend and colleague, Jerry Williams, and followed by several of his closest teammates as well as motorcycles, riding having been one of Macon’s passions.
RM Logistics sold the Peterbilt last week and donated the earnings to Shane Macon's estate, which will assist his five children.
Macon started his career in 2008 with Rollins Montgomery before joining RM Logistics as one of the company's first employees in 2010. “Shane was a fantastic driver, as well as one of the company's most loyal and hardworking employees and a close friend to many,” said Rollins Montgomery of the Montgomery Entities. “I’ve seen a lot of heartfelt things in my career but the presence of the drivers and riders for Shane’s final ride says a lot about Shane. It is a true honor to be able to recognize Shane as one of the company's first employees and to now assist him in providing for his children. He is sorely missed.”
