Congratulations, Ken

To the Editor:

Ken Goraczkowski recently retired from Fairmont Ford. For 43 years, he worked as the body shop manager and service manager.

Ken was a very dedicated hard-worker who put in long hours, many Saturday mornings and came in during adverse weather. He treated all employees and customers with respect. He was a good listener. No matter how rough the day, you were always greeted with a pleasant smile.

Congratulations on a job well done and best wishes.
