Four employees at the Postal Service’s Salt Lake City Vehicle Maintenance Facility recently celebrated a combined 130 years of federal employment.
Dave Hansen and Ronald Rydalch, two automotive technicians, each have 35 years of service, while David Farr, a technician, and Jay Shibuya, a supervisor, each have three decades of service.
All are military veterans.
“It’s been a pleasure working with these guys, who do their best to ensure our carriers are driving … safe, reliable [vehicles],” said Steve Martinez, the facility’s manager. “They have a passion for working on vehicles.”
Each member of the quartet called USPS the best job he has ever had — a level of pride that Farr summed up with his favorite motto: “If you don’t have time to do it right, you don’t have time to do it over.”
