He was a true gentleman. He also was a sharp businessman, who developed successful products during 30 years in manufacturing. His son, Jon, who has been with the company for 12 years, is now the president of XS Sights. “We’re real strong, and we’re getting stronger every day. My dad made a lot of investments in resources in order to keep growing. We want to continue to be a strong company, with good people who make good products. Every day, I’m reminded of the values my dad had and how he made that part of this company,” Jon said. XS Sights is shoulder-to-shoulder with people that reflect Ed Pastusek’s values. I miss him.
