ARSCO became a corporation in 1984 as A Richard Smith Co, Inc., dba today as American Roofing Systems Company. Richard Smith is a fourth generation Arkansan, and he and his wife Peggy, who is the heart of the company, both grew up in Cammack Village, AR, graduated from Hall High, and went to the University of Central Arkansas. Their three children grew up in Little Rock, where the family resided before moving to Bentonville, AR in 2001. They serve in church, community, and in service organizations and have been on several mission trips to Haiti and Mexico. They are the proud grandparents of six fabulous grandchildren.
Alice Dennis has been a part of ARSCO from the beginning. She is the administrator for both ARSCO offices. Her organizational skills and professionalism have been, and are, invaluable to the company. She, too, is a native Arkansan and grew up in Paris, Arkansas. She and her husband, Bill, live in Maumelle, have three children, two beautiful granddaughters, and a handsome grandson.
Skip Cook, Executive Manager of the ARSCO Central AR Division, grew up in Oklahoma and is a graduate of Oklahoma State University. He was in the financial trade for many years, worked for several years as an insurance adjuster, is the former owner of Cook Restoration, and has been in the construction industry for over 18 years. His patience, aptitude, and knowledge serve the company well. He has two sons, and Skip is now bursting with pride as a new grandfather.
Gary Ables graduated of Parkview H.S. in Little Rock followed by a stint with the U.S. Army. After being honorably discharged in 1968, Gary went to the University of Arkansas and from there worked for several financial institutions. He has been involved in the roofing business since 2009, and his pleasant manner and high standards offer his customers and ARSCO the highest degree available in the roofing industry.
Cliff Powell was raised in Eudora, AR and graduated from the University of Arkansas in 1969 where he was an All-American linebacker for the Razorbacks. Cliff, too, has been involved in church and civic service in Hamburg, Little Rock, and in Fayetteville where he and his wife Pat now live. Cliff and Pat proudly share five children and eight grandchildren. Having just joined the ARSCO team in the spring of 2011, the construction industry is new to Cliff, but the rest of the team is here for support. Cliff is catching on quickly and it won’t be long before he will be the one giving advice.
Keith Price, also new to ARSCO in the spring of 2011, has been involved in home remodeling and new construction where he has designed and installed securities systems since 1994 as an expert in the field. With his high standards and knowledge of the industry his addition to the company is a real plus, and he has hit the ground (or roofs) running. He and his wife Karen are the beaming parents of one son, Taylor, who is attending school in Little Rock. Both Keith and Karen are graduates of Hall High in Little Rock and the University of Central Arkansas, and they are active in trade, civic, and church organizations.
Robert Renfrow is a graduate of Sheridan, AR H.S. and attended U.A.L.R. After college he worked with Skip Cook in remodeling and restoration and has been in the construction industry for almost 5 years. His I.T. acumen and organizational skills have been of great benefit to ARSCO, and we are really glad to have Robert as a part of the team.
