TYMCO Friends,

We have some very sad news to share with you. Joe “Joey” Dvorsky passed away suddenly yesterday, December 17, after a heart attack at Providence Hospital in Waco, Texas. He was 57 years old and made his professional life at TYMCO a lifelong career for over 37 years. He was a loving and dedicated husband, father, son, eldest brother and was soon to be a first time grandfather.

Joe Dvorsky started working at TYMCO in the summers while he was going to school at Texas A&M University and continued working at TYMCO fulltime after attending college. Joe met his wife, Mary, at TYMCO who was a computer programmer. He was a very logical thinker and had a very unique, hands-on approach to develop solutions for problems. Joe started the TYMCO Service School in the early 1980s where he served as the first instructor and wrote and produced the first Operator Safety and Training Videos for TYMCO Sweepers. He played an integral role in developing the Model FHD (Forward High Dump), Model 500x as well as numerous improvements for all TYMCO Sweeper models.

One of Joe’s most notable accomplishments in his professional career was his part in the development of TYMCO Dustless Sweeping Technology, the foundation for both Models DST-6 and DST-4. He is also listed as an inventor for the patent on this technology. Most recently, Joe served the last several years as Manager of the TYMCO Research and Development (R&D) Engineering Department.

It is an understatement to say that Joe was good at what he did. He started his career at an early age here at TYMCO in the Maintenance Department working his way through school, but his ability to grasp mechanical systems led him to be an accomplished systems designer and engineer. He truly was a one-of-a-kind.

Information on services for Joe can be found at Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Joe have lost an inspiring colleague and dear friend. Our deepest sympathy is with his family at this difficult time.

Words cannot express our sadness at Joe’s unexpected death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him all these years. We will miss him.
