It is with deep sympathy that we share the passing of for ACPA staff and longtime partner Dan Frentress on November 19, 2023.

Dan was a longtime friend of ACPA and our Chapter Network. Prior to working with ACPA, Dan served as Executive Director for the Concrete Pavement Association of Minnesota (CPAM) for 15 years. During his time at CPAM, he was awarded the Arnie Laingen Award, which he considered one of his biggest accomplishments with the organization. The Arnie Laingen award honors individuals who exemplify Arnie’s integrity and commitment to promoting quality and excellence in the concrete paving industry in Minnesota. He was selected by a committee of his peers, all prior winners of the award.

After leaving CPAM, he served as our Vice President of Highways, helping to broaden ACPA’s work in the highway market in the early 2000s. Finally, he started his own consulting business Frentress Enterprises LLC, specializing in concrete training and research, and in 2006 he contracted with the International Grooving and Grinding Association to promote concrete repair and Diamond Grinding in the states of Texas and Iowa.

A visitation for Dan will be held on Friday, November 24th at 5pm at Jones Pearson Funeral Home, and funeral services will be held at 11am on Saturday, November 25th at Grace Community Church in Osage, MN with lunch to follow. The full obituary with funeral service details can be found online here.

Our deepest sympathies go to Dan’s family during this time.
