It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our founder, Bob Daffer, on July 8 after a brief illness.
Bob started selling Allen organs to churches for the Jordan-Kitts music company in 1963. In 1977, he founded his own company, R. A. Daffer Church Organs, Inc, initially just representing Rodgers Organ in the Baltimore market area. His vision was to create a company that would put the same care and effort in the installation of electronic organs that fine pipe organ builders put into their creations.
Through his vision, we grew to be the most successful Rodgers sales and service company in the United States. In 1993 we expanded by representing the Fratelli Ruffatti pipe organ company. In 2017, we expanded again by adding the Johannus and Makin line of digital organs.
He will be deeply missed as our company carries on his legacy of excellence.
Our hundreds of customers stand as testament to the care given to each installation, large and small. The best answer for your church’s organ needs may be a pipe organ, a digital organ, or a hybrid of the two.
