#FarrisStory: Finding Joy In Your Work

"My Father was an inspiration to me. He taught me the value of hard work and always finding joy in whatever you worked at. He worked as an ironworker (building/working on hydroelectric dams throughout the western US), moving houses in the Detroit area, timber logging in northwestern Montana. He died an untimely death in a logging accident in 1982. It is unfortunate that he never had the opportunity to meet his great grandson, who my wife and I are raising. I've strived to pass on to my grandson these work ethics that my father gave to me which hopefully will be passed on to future generations."
