SMITHFIELD – More than 50 years ago, E-Z Dumper and Trailer founder Al Lussier’s wife, Terry Lussier, gave him an ultimatum that would go on to affect his, his sons’, and grandsons’ lives forever.

Terry told Al he had to quit his job selling truck equipment on the road or she was leaving him. Al conceded that he wasn’t home often, and had nine children to raise. He chose his family, and rented out space at 21 Rocky Hill Road in Smithfield to sell E-Z Dumpers, a hydraulic dump insert for trucks.

Welcome to the discussion.

We’ve recently revised our comment policy to help us be more consistent and to be in keeping with our goal to promote a better community conversation. If a comment is deleted, rather than complain about it, simply try again by modifying the verbiage.

Comments that will be deleted include:
  • Those that include threatening, derogatory, obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist, sexist or sexually-oriented language. This includes any name-calling/nicknames of people both on the local and national level.
  • Those with accusations or allegations that can’t be proven, or that try to build a negative narrative about one person or entity over time through a clearly coordinated campaign. If you believe the backstory really needs to be shared, send us a letter to the editor or a story pitch with your name and contact information.
  • Those with outright lies or falsehoods.
Please use the 'Report' link on each comment to let us know if you believe a comment was allowed in error.

What we at The Breeze would truly like to see are comments that add history and context to a story or that use criticism constructively.
