The Signature family is truly at a loss for words with the recent passing of their Southeast Senior Sales Manager, Candace DuCharme. “As a 22-year employee, everyone who met her felt as if they had known her for a lifetime - she made them feel extra special. Candace had the ability to capture the attention of her customers as she went through ways of promoting growth within her customers’ businesses. She had a knack for teaching her customers about Signature’s machines in a fun and witty fashion.”
Candace moved to Florida in 1993 and opened Signature Engraving’s UI South location in the Tampa area as Southeast Senior Sales Manager. She was instrumental in acquiring large accounts like IJO, Fast Fix Jewelry Repair, Disney and Lillian Vernon, just to name a few.
Candace would readily assist and work on all aspects of the 50+ trade shows that Signature does each year, and she still found the time to work on her sales of engraving machines.
Candace leaves behind her daughter Amy Patruno and her husband Scott Moore, her son Lucas Patruno and his wife Tara Patruno, along with three treasured granddaughters, Audra, Abbigail and Claire.
The Signature staff will sorely miss Candace and wants all her friends to realize that her spirit will live on within the Signature Family.
