Allegheny Glass & Mirror's first employee was Lois Simanski's father, Charles Storm. He started with the company from day one and worked as shop supervisor until 1984. Although Charlie worked most of his life as either a coal miner or miscellaneous laborer, he had no problem stepping in to the shoes as a glass shop foreman. Whether doing shop repairs, ordering material, mixing paint(in the early years) or dealing with customers and sales associates, Charlie always exuded the integrity and honesty of a seasoned professional. Many of today's shop personnel are using Charlie's repair techniques. Anyone who worked with him knew him as a excellent mechanic with would work faithfully on a project until it was completed.

After Charlie retired, he would often return to the shop to reminisce with workers about his days as shop boss. Occasionally, he would even help work on one of his favorite jobs. " Screen Repair" Charlie died on Sept. 10 2000 Although he is gone, his memory and legacy will live on with the Allegheny Glass & Mirror family for years to come.
