Timothy “Timmy” Brennan, former Triple T Transport employee, died at age 53 on Nov. 22 after spending most of the year on disability leave. Brennan has left a major impact on the Columbus, Ohio-based company and the employees he mentored over the years.
Brennan spent 19 years at Triple T in a variety of positions. Most recently, he worked in carrier relations and as a night crew supervisor, dispatching loads.
“He truly was all encompassing when it came to what he did for the company,” said Brenna Shull, human resources manager.
Prior to his career at Triple T, Brennan worked in customer service and sales with Sanfillipo Produce Co. and Abbott Foods Inc. Employees described Brennan as committed and hard working around the office with an infectious sense of humor. He also was a mentor to fellow employees.
“Timmy was a great communicator and teacher. You knew where you stood with Timmy as honesty and understanding were very important to him,” said Chris Reynolds, transportation coordinator. “Timmy strived to ensure that every employee understood the TTT philosophy, allowing for both the company and individuals, including myself, to achieve success throughout the years.”
As Triple T progresses with a plan to move into its first stand-alone office space, president Darin Puppel wants to dedicate a wing or a portion of the building to Brennan.
