Plans upon retirement                                                                                                                                                Do what I want when I want.

Hobbies?                                                                                                                                                               Hunting, Fishing, Riding Bicycles.

Any info/advise would like to share on the retirement preparation? Things to consider?                     Do you have enough income to support retirement? Can you pay for insurance?  You deserve time for yourself. Time keeps ticking. How are you going to spend it?

How did you know it was time to retire?                                                                                                                   I often heard you will know when it is time to retire. This held true for me. I just know it’s time.

Any special memories you would like to share with other employees?                                             Working with good people and a good company. I made a good living.

What advice for the new guys?                                                                                                                              This is a good place to work. Because of the two tier system if you can get a job paying comparable wages I recommend you work there and not here.  

What advice for the guys with 25 years in with the company?                                                                     Get out and retire as soon as you can.

How do you want to be remembered?                                                                                                                    As a good man. Honest and fair.

Now I am ready to start a different chapter of my life. I want to spend more time with my family and I want to be more involved with my Church.
