Late to the party
by: JackieO

Sorry it has taken me so long to send you my good wishes, but I've been leading the life of a busy retiree for nearly a month now!

I obviously don't have a wealth of inspired wisdom for you yet on how to lead the retired life, but let me just share that since we've been on this retirement-celebration road trip, I frequently find myself smiling at the realization I will not have to go back to work when I get home!

It was fun working with you on all our projects, and I'll be eternally grateful to you for your organized photo library. It was always at your fingertips when I desperately needed an image.

I wish you all the best. Stay in touch!!

parking spot
by: Anonymous

Greg. Please be careful when you leave tonight. Hopefully, you will not have to crawl in the passenger door of your vehicle.

Tom -

I parked in your parking spot today, just wanted to see how it felt, have to admit its a pretty nice spot, no wonder you were always happy in the morning.

P.S. Nick is still lonely.. Please call him....


Update to Doug's Update

Tom. It is now 4:19pm on Tuesday and the parking lot is pretty empty. People seem to leave earlier in the day since you have left.

Update to Greg's Update
by: Doug O.

Some things are still the same:

- Coffee is still empty every time I go for a cup. Evidently it is true that you were not the one that was making a fresh pot.
- Water jug is still empty. Evidently it is true that you never put a new one on the cooler.
- Air quality on the second floor has improved dramatically this week. Enough said.

Other request:

- Could you please drop off more business cards? Greg, Nick and I have already used all the ones you hid all over our cubes. I hope it is ok that we wrote your personal cell phone number on them before we handed them out. You should be ok though, we told them not to call during Gunsmoke or Leave it to Beaver.

Quick update.
by: Greg Mashlan

So its the Tuesday after your retirement. Couple things have happened already.

- Doug already took your parking spot, his car probably leaks oil too, sorry buddy...
- And the Donut Zar you put in charge, I think he's already missed someone, I have no idea what you were thinking when you picked Joe.
- Lastly, Nick doesn't know what to do with himself between the hours of 7:00am and 8:00am, could you just maybe give him a call or something in the morning, I think it would really get him on the right track the rest of the day.

Hope your doing well, that's all for now.

And you're off.......
by: Kelly W

Tom, it has been a good time working with you -- remember back at 1302 S Broadway when our cubes backed up to each other. You have always been such a caring person --- thank you for the support you have given me. I wish you the best in your retirement, keep smiling, and "toodles" until we meet again:)

Congrats Tom on making it to this awesome phase in your life. In my professional career, I have never worked with anyone that has been as willing to help as you are. Thank you for always being available when a fellow PM needed guidance, or reassurance when it came to a project. You will truly be missed around here. Best of luck moving forward and keep in touch.

You know, with your attitude and sense of humor you could have been a Yooper. But we all have to accept our lot in life so you'll just have to be satisfied with being a great guy, an excellent PM and s good friend. Enjoy the next chapter of your life and look me up if you ever get north of the border. Take care.

Ever since I moved up to the De Pere office, you've been a true friend and mentor. I always looked up to the way you conducted yourself and will certainly miss all your helpful advice and guidance, both professionally and personally. Congrats on your retirement and enjoy the extra time you get to spend with your wife, kids, and grandkids! Don't be a stranger, I still owe you a lunch or two.

Wow, it’s been a long time, you were here when I arrived here in 2005.. It's really been a pleasure working with you, from the friendly banter, to the after work outings, to you letting me know who made the coffee every morning. Thanks for all those memories...

I wish you the best as you ride off into the sunset, its well-earned, go have some fun!

Take Care!

Golfing and Coffee
by: Logan Brecklin

Hey Tom,

Was great working with you over the last few years. You made ATC a very enjoyable place to be. Not sure who will hound on people to bring in donuts or refill coffee pots. I'll also miss not having someone brag about an awesome golfing game or all the perks they enjoyed as a Major Project Manager. Your social awareness and popularity will be missed.

But in all reality, really going to miss you, Tom! Best wishes in all of retirement and hope to see you often with fantasy football and other ATC-related shenanigans.

by: Patty Gobin

You're definitely too young to be retiring! We should be able to get at least another 10 years out of you. LOL. Just kidding. It really has been a pleasure to work with you Tom. I wish you and your family a healthy, happy retirement adventure. What a great asset you have been to Team ATC. We will miss you but wish you only the best! Cheers to you!

by: Jeff Cloninger

Congratulations Tom! Take care of yourself and make the most a well earned retirement. Your calm keen insight and conversation will be missed at ATC.

Congratulations, Tom!
by: Teresa Kochaver

You will be missed!! It was a great working with you--you are an awesome PM! Best wishes in this next exciting phase of life--the best is yet to be!!! Enjoy every minute.

Congrats Tom!!!

Congrats on your retirement Tom! Now you can spend even more time giving my old man a hard time about skipping out on the happy hour bill. Best wishes on your future adventures!

by: Rob Schuh
