GM Employee Retires after 67 Years with the Company

Recommended Posts

This article reminds me of my own paternal grandfather, who worked for over 51 years at Buick Motor Division in Flint. He walked out the door for the last time on May 31, 1971. He drove the 2 millionth Buick Skylark off the assembly line 2 weeks earlier. I have pictures of that event.

Here is to a job well done Elmer! :cheers:

Quite amazing! Hardly hear anymore of people staying with a company for that long.

This is quite true. My grandfather held the record at GM for quite a while. A secretary my dad and I both worked with at AC Spark Plug broke my grandfather's record. She worked for 55 years. This is the first person I've heard go well over 60 years.

If you love what you do and the people you work with, it's not really work. I wish I had a career like that. Sadly, I never have. You're dad is one lucky man.

My mom had a bumper sticker on the bar unit in the basement of their house. It read "Retirement Means: Twice as Much Husband, Half as Much Pay!"
