This morning I met with several York County men who retired after working at their respective companies for 30 years or more.

    Yes, my mother worked for the York County Government for 32 years and just retired in 2008. She started in Voter Registration Department in 1972, then went to the Commissioners Office and then to The Register of Wills Department where she retired from. She put many good years of service in and enjoyed her work very much.

    I worked at York International, now Johnson Controls, for 34 1/2 years and retired in July 2009. Then as a consultant to them for another 2 3/4 years. Finally “retired” March 29. Never had a production job there. Spent all those years in maintenance. Served my electrical apprenticeship there. I figure that I earned this time off. Enjoying life now with my wife and family. How did I ever have the time to get all this stuff done before?
