Dave Stuber was just out of high school in 1968 when he was hired to work as a technician in the tape recorder production of Crown International. The Elkhart, Indiana based audio company continued to pay Dave and even gave him raises when he was drafted to serve in the army during the Vietnam War. After the army, he returned to Crown where he worked mostly as Facilities Manager until 2018. By then, the company was purchased by Harman who in turn was bought out by Samsung. In 2017, the Elkhart factory was scheduled to close the following June, however, knowing his 50th anniversary with the company was later that summer, Dave remained on the payroll until his anniversary.
