FRANKFORT, N.Y. -- Those who knew and loved him helped dedicate the Empire State Highway Contractors Association Training Center Thursday to Joe "Bud" Gigliotti.
Gigliotti passed away in November.
Friends describe him as a well-respected consultant and pioneer in the construction business, statewide.
They say it's fitting that a center to train and certify heavy equipment operators be named after a man who knew almost everyone, and was always willing to help anyone.
The training center is on Higby Road, in Frankfort.
