Sad day for the United family as Darian Chustz passed away this morning. I had only had contact with him a few times(due to him being in our Gulf Region), but he was very well thought of in the company. There are some video links in a few of these articles that explains the dominance of Coke in the the Gulf region, and why the new bottling facility was built in Baton Rouge(as seen on the Discovery Channel).

Man, I wonder how he died? That was too young for him to die. :(

The article I found in The Advocate (http://theadvocate.com/home/1799091-125/joseph-chustz-executive-with-coca-cola.html) states that he died after a "very brief illness".
