Gary Bryant Retires from Tyler Pipe after 44 Years of Service

What do you do after 44 years of working in an iron foundry?  Tyler Pipe team member Gary Bryant’s wife Cindy said “You do a bunch of honey-do’s.” Gary, aka “Chipmunk” joined Tyler Pipe on November 19, 1973 and his last day of work will be November 30, 2017.  What better time to hang up your boots than in your anniversary month. Gary has decided to lay down his PM (preventive maintenance) lists and pick up a honey-do list instead.

Tyler Pipe held a retirement celebration for Gary on November 15 that included Texas style chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls and of course a really big cake.  Gary was joined at the party by his wife, children and grandchildren. His family talked about how they remember their dad going to work every day and how Tyler Pipe helped pay for their home, their education and much, much more.

Gary will be driving a bus part-time for the local hospital and plans to stay active with the Shriners.  He has been a part of the Shriners since 1994 and has been a member of the Masonic Lodge since 1984.

He is also a member of the Legions of Honors Veterans who carry flags at funerals for veterans.

Gary will be greatly missed at Tyler Pipe as he enjoys a well-deserved retirement.
