My guess is we all have stories like this, mine was at a paper mill I was working at for a few weeks (during a shutdown/upgrade). One of the operators had been there 40+ years and was going to retire, but they talked him into hanging around a few extra weeks to help during the turnaround. Sadly, one of the other operators found him in his truck in the plant parking lot, he had passed away as he was heading home. You don't often see that many hardened construction types crying their eyes out, it was just sad.
Now that FMcB and I scared the bejesus out of you, what did you end up doing PC?
