Baylor Trucking founder and World War II veteran Chester Baylor passed away last night at the age of 97.
After serving in the Pacific during World War II, Baylor founded his company in 1946 from a single truck that he used to haul furniture from the Milan Furniture Factory.
Chester Baylor retired from the company in 1986, leaving the operation to his son Bob. When Bob passed away in 2015, Cari Baylor stepped in to run Baylor Trucking.
From a single truck, the Baylor family has grown their Milan, Indiana, based company into a 300 truck operation with terminals in Ohio and Tennessee.
