Meet McWane: Leroy Sistrunk, Tyler Union

Leroy Sistrunk Collage

Tyler Union team member Leroy Sistrunk retired on March 1st, 2015. Leroy began his career at Tyler Union on March 22nd, 2000, in the Disa Millroom. Leroy’s friends and co-workers knew him as a serious “down-to-business” man, rarely joking until his favorite day of the week rolled around…Wednesday.

If you’re thinking Hump Day, middle of the week, halfway to the weekend, you’re wrong. Wednesday was payday and Leroy always did a two-step dance when he got his check. Dale Garrett, Leroy’s supervisor, said this made Wednesday his favorite day of the week also because he always looked forward to watching Leroy do the “payday dance.”

According to Dale, Leroy had one request on his last day and that was to know how it felt to instruct the crew. Dale obliged and under his close supervision, Leroy got his wish. He even let Leroy wear his hard hat for a while!

Leroy, we wish you a happy and relaxing retirement – and we will certainly think of you and your “payday dance” on Wednesdays!
