Alvin Saur started as a dozer operator at the age of 16. In 1952 he was called to serve as a combat fighter of the US Army in Korea. When he came home in 1953, he went straight back as a dozer operator for a local company. When the owner died, the family sold all of the equipment to Alvin, and so began Saur Construction in 1957.
Alvin was advised by Clara to slow down and retire in the ’90s, but he wanted to help his employees who were dedicated with the company since it started. “God put me on this earth to work, and that’s what I’m going to do.” Alvin incessantly worked until his last breath in 2000; he was sitting in his tractor when he died.
Wayne, who also served our country, grew up sitting in a dozer with Alvin. He started operating their machinery ever since he could reach the pedal. He had an Associate Degree in Civil Engineering that has allowed him to read a set of plans and lead his operators to accomplish jobs efficiently.
Wayne’s son Seth has gone through the same path and now carries the family’s legacy in building and helping the community.
This family-owned business had build hundreds of golf courses, street roads, dams, and tanks, and land clearing over 63 years. A well respected and well-liked member of the community because of their dedication and community involvement.
