Later, his son Edward worked his way up in the business, ultimately purchasing it in 1981. Edward's daughter, Cathy Davis, began working for her father shortly after he bought the business. Twenty years later, Cathy followed her father's path by becoming the owner of Bartlett Brainard Products, a leading CT exterior home renovation company.
