Kris Luey  -- Sales Representative

Kris joined us at Linford’s in September 2014.  Born & raised in upstate NY his first job in high school was at a family owned deli.  In 1998 Kris decided to move to Alaska – and landed in Girdwood.  He began working at The Bake Shop and The Double Musky Inn – wearing many different hats in both places.  Sometimes the jobs would overlap as he helped the two family businesses operate smoothly.  In 2011, Kris decided it was time to take his family and move to the big city – Anchorage, stepping into sales via insurance.  After 2 years his love of the food Industry kept calling to him, so he chose to try mixing his sales with the food industry.  Lucky for Linford’s – he made a great choice!  Today Kris says his main goal at Linford’s is to provide superior customer service and bring value any way he can to his customers!  Kris is kept in check by staying busy with coaching his kids’ sports teams while enjoying his own game of softball.  He is also an avid skier and enjoys going back to his old stomping grounds of Girdwood – to play and eat!  You can reach Kris here at the office or on his cell 342-2169.

Our Warehouse Crew


Armindo Donis-Quevedo is known to us as “Miguel”. Miguel is in charge of running the warehouse and managing the deliveries. Miguel came to Alaska from his homeland, Guatamala and has been in Anchorage for 15 years. He met his wife while taking classes to learn English; they have two children, a boy and a girl. In 2006 Miguel came to work for Linford but after a year and a half he decided to try his hand at business ownership, an auto shop. Six years later, he returned to Linford and moved quickly into this supervisory role which suits his loyal, can do attitude. However, his main “pride and joy” still remains working on vehicles.


William has been with Linford since 2001. He hails from El Salvador, but enroute to Alaska, made his home in LA. William is the proud parent of four children, three girls and finally one boy, William Jr. William Sr. claims that Jr. is a terror, giving him heart-burn wandering off quite independently. He can usually be found in the toy department. William has many family relatives in the Anchorage area. When he is not spending time with family he is an avid body builder.


Coby Hoffman was born in Bethel but was raised mostly in Anchorage.  He joined Linford’s in the Spring of 2015.  He hangs out in the warehouse putting away freight and pulling orders.  Sometimes he’s out on the road making deliveries.  Coby looks forward to getting off early so he can catch a football or basketball game live!


Roderick Labuen (Rod) was born and raised in Palm Springs, California. He came to Alaska in 1998. Rod first came to Linford in 2005 and remained until 2007. After a brief time out, he returned in 2009 and is one of our valued, competent drivers. Rod is married to Karleen and they have three children. He is a “family guy”.

Jaime Sagastume was born and raised in Guatamala. Some call him “Eddy” in fact, he must prefer to be called “Eddy” as he refers to himself as “Eddy”…(news to me). Eddy has lived in Alaska for 12 years moving here with his sister and brothers. He graduated in 2003 from Bartlett High School. In February 2009, he joined his life in holy matrimony with his beautiful girlfriend of 5 years. A year later they welcomed their first baby boy named Joel and two year later their second boy named Josiah arrived. Ever since he was a baby, Eddy’s (aka Jaime) favorite sport has been soccer which he can play all day and all night given the chance. Other enjoyments include camping, biking, running and most of all spending time with his beautiful family. Eddy has been with Linford since May 2013 and says that he has loved it ever since.


Edwin Escalante has been with Linford’s for a couple years now.  He usually works in the warehouse but will assist with backing up our drivers – so you can occasionally catch him out on the road. He handles the Bypass orders and the Fax and Pulls. He is also from El Salvador and came to Alaska around 15 years ago by way of Los Angeles. He is married to Donna and they have two children.

Hector Marroquin had worked at Linford’s between 2002 and the spring of 2015.  At that time he decided that it was warmer in California and left us, but after almost a whole year he found that he missed us…  Okay – not quite, but, he has an adorable son that he really did miss and besides, his son LOVES to keep daddy up all night playing. Hector and his motorcycle are favorites with his son. He is originally from El Salvador.

 Timothy Pen is one of our warehouse & drivers.  He is currently taking care of our valley runs and then helps putting away freight in the warehouse..  He was born and raised in Stockton California and moved  up to Anchorage when he turned 18.  He has a very diverse nationality – Lao, Thai and Cambodian.  Tim said that his favorite food is anything delicious, I think with the mixed nationalities – the next potluck will be interesting!  When not working you will find Tim playing with his two handsome boys and will be teaching them to play his favorite hobbies of basketball and football. 

Luis Torres has returned to us and we are so happy that he is here. His hard work and upbeat attitude are a joy to have. He loves spending time with his family and is always quick with a smile.  

Joe Abraham is our newest employee. We are happy to have him as part of our team. He works hard every day pulling orders and making deliveries. If you see him out on his rounds besure to say hello!
