Hundreds of truckers convoy to say goodbye to company founder suffering from cancer


Last week, friends and employees turned out in droves to show love and respect for a trucking company founder batting cancer.

On May 1, around 300 vehicles convoyed past the home of Vernon Erb, 84, in Ontario, Canada, as he and his family watched from the front lawn. Erb is fighting an aggressive form of cancer.

Erb founded Erb Transport in 1959 with a single dump truck. The company now employs around 1500 people.
