Cruiser, the True Value and Walker Drug store mascot passed away peacefully on Monday, March 19. He was 17 years old. Cruiser was born in Moab and spent his entire life living and working at True Value.

As a young boy he spent his days prowling the aisles looking for feather dusters and cat toys, and breaking open bags of dog food. As he grew older he could be found wandering the aisles looking for a pat on the head, or a scratch behind the ear. When he wasn’t working the floor he could be found in the office holding down piles of paper, playing with phone cords or waiting patiently to share lunch with his fellow employees.

Cruiser is survived by all of his people at True Value and Walker Drug, and a multitude of friends who would stop by to visit him and ply him with treats and snuggles. Rest in peace, little buddy. We miss you.
