David “Dave” Arthur Lillquist, Skyjack national accounts manager, has died at the age of 57. Lillquist, who was born in St. Paul, Min., had been living in Phoenix in recent years.
Skyjack issued the following statement:
“Dave is survived by his sons Magnus & Henrik, wife Amy, father Arthur, brother Keith, and sister Karen. Dave also leaves behind many more family members and friends. Those who knew Dave know that he was an honest and jovial man who loved to make people smile.
“Dave was also a very dear friend and coworker although, with Dave’s vibrant personality, working with him never did feel like a job. Over the past five years Dave was a National Account Manager for Skyjack Inc and was always professional, diligent, and above all honest. He built relationships with coworkers and clients, which turned quite easily into friendships.
“We at Skyjack offer Dave’s family our deepest condolences during their time of grief. We hope that Magnus and Henrik can find some solace in knowing their father was a great and successful man.
“Dave will be missed dearly and live in the hearts of many for many more years to come.”
