Pat DiCicco, Eagle Power Sales Representative, Passes Away

(Montgomeryville, PA) It is with tremendous sadness that Eagle Power & Equipment must share the sudden passing of a beloved member of their company, Pat DiCicco. Gifted with a tremendous heart and appreciation for others, there is hardly anyone in the industry working in the Delaware Valley whom he has not touched in his over 50-year career.

Born in the Philadelphia area in 1947, Pat started as an assistant parts manager at State Equipment Corp. in 1967. Seeking to move into capital equipment sales he joined CASE Power Equipment in 1971 as a trencher salesman. His attention to the needs of customers allowed him to take responsibility over a full CASE line territory in 1973. He was one of the many who formed the independent Eagle Power and Equipment in 1996 after the company’s purchase by Jerry McDonald. Throughout it all he was the personal connection customers had with the brand and organization. Always greeting folks with a smile, a joke, and an unwavering commitment to doing right by them.

Darwin Boe, Eagle Power & Equipment Controller, Retires.

A CASE Man his entire career, the Wisconsin native concludes 49 years of service to customers and colleagues.

(Montgomeryville, PA) Every member of the Eagle Power & Equipment team wished a much deserved and happy retirement to its beloved controller Darwin Boe. On June 16th “Bo”, as he is known to his friends and colleagues, completed his nearly half century career with Eagle Power & CASE Construction. An event marked with an afternoon of toasts, comradery, and many stories.

Darwin Boe grew up in the Bluff Country of Wisconsin, in the small village of Taylor. His graduation class numbered just 24 students. He attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison, graduating with a BBA in Accounting. His first job out of college was in the internal auditing department of CASE Construction’s corporate offices. This role took him around North America, seeing every conceivable product, application, challenge, and success. Most importantly, was the wide gamut of people he was able to meet and the truly unique experiences he partook in, providing invaluable stories and life experiences he would relate to for years to come.

After two years he had married and wanted to get off the road. He was given two choices to join a regional store as CFO: Philadelphia or Los Angeles. He chose CASE Power in Philadelphia. He would be in that role ever since; being among many who stayed with the organization as Jerry McDonald purchased the CASE Montgomeryville and New Castle stores creating Eagle Power. In his role he can rightly say to have had a direct hand in getting CASE equipment, among other leading brands, to customers throughout the Delaware Valley for nearly a half century.

“Looking back I can say I have a lot of words, maybe not a lot of wisdom,” Bo said with a smile recently. “The best parts of this job come from the people you work with. No two days are the same, every day gives you an opportunity and a challenge. What makes it work is the people. The reason I stayed with this organization for my entire career was because it is a family business. Everyone here is part of that family. It makes all the difference when you come in each morning and knowing that the next generation is taking up the charge makes leaving each day special.”
“Bo is a legend here at Eagle as well as the entire industry” reflected Matt McDonald, President of Eagle Power & Equipment. “Bo has worked tirelessly for almost 50 years, and a huge part of Eagle’s success is due to him. He has been a mentor and a guide to me for 27 years. I am very happy for him and hope he will enjoy every minute of his well deserved retirement.

“It has truly been my honor to have worked with Bo” said Bridget McDonald, Vice President of Eagle Power & Equipment. “His vast experience has been invaluable to me. Bo has taught me so much about the business, there wasn’t one question that I had that he hadn’t experienced before, and he always provided sound advice. I am going to miss seeing him everyday and spending time with him. Bo is an institution at Eagle Power and an interictal part of our success!”

Bo looks forward to an active retirement. There will be more time for golf of course but more importantly time to spend with his family, especially his grandsons. The legacy of Bo continues at Eagle Power as Darwin’s son David is in the role of Equipment Manager. Amanda Smith assumes the role and responsibilities of company Controller.

The entire Eagle Power & Equipment family wishes Bo a happy and well-earned retirement!
