Employee Moves from Field Technician to Prison Professor
Being in the HVAC service business for over 40 years has resulted in an abundance of memories and peaks and valleys for me. Looking back, the people that you journey with through those years are often what you treasure the most. Some walk beside you through thick or thin. Others mature into exceptional people. Some struggle just to succeed, and others are gifted and continue to surprise you and make you proud.Lloyd was a little bit of everything. He joined our company after high school. He was gifted with his hands and had one of the sharpest technical minds we’ve have ever employed. He was with us for almost 30 years, and during the last 20-plus years, he was our “go-to guy” for our most challenging jobs. Lloyd stayed in the field because he had too many side hobbies and didn’t want to put in the extra hours required for a management position. Sadly, he also made some bad decisions in the last couple of years working with us and ended up in prison.
