Hershel Flournoy & Willie Williams hang up their boots
July 24, 2017
How do you celebrate over 84 years of combined service? Two of Tyler Pipe’s finest, Hershel Flournoy (40 years) and Willie Williams (44 years), celebrated their retirement with a huge retirement party catered by Jucy’s Hamburger and invited every single team member. Jucy Hamburgers grilled fat, juicy, half pound burgers right there at the Tyler Pipe facility over a wood burning fire grill. Yes, that’s right, fat juicy hamburgers with their famous pinto beans, chips, sweet tea and dessert.
Hershel’s retirement date was actually June 2 and now that he is officially retired, he plans on perfecting his BBQ skills and doing a little fishing and hunting. He spent the last few years at Tyler Pipe working as a Permanent Mold Finisher.
Willie spent his first 36 years at Tyler Pipe in the Finishing Department, but ended his career as a Pipe Processor. Willie has 20 grandchildren so when he’s not fishing, he’ll certainly have a lot to keep him busy.
We wish Willie and Hershel a long and happy retirement.
