It's with a heavy heart we announce the passing of our devoted founder, Joseph Wayne Earnshaw, who passed peacefully in his sleep on the morning of Saturday, February 18th.

Joe worked for the San Jose Police Department for 23 years. Not long after joining the force he recognized the city of San Jose needed a top-quality uniform store. He and his wife, Kathy, started the business in 1971, and we have been serving Bay Area's finest for 46 years now.

Joe was an extremely hard working and driven man, who still worked in Summit's back office until 77 years old. He will be remembered as a loving and charismatic husband, father, and grandfather. His devotion to provide decades of quality service to the community will never be forgotten, and will live on through his children, Patrick and Tricia.

A service for Joe will be held on Wednesday, March 1st at 12:30 at Holy Spirit Church. All are welcome to attend and celebrate the life of this great man.
