Today I just found out that my old boss Carl Hummel has passed away at 91.

He was my boss at Winchester Repeating Arms, and US Repeating Arms for almost 30+ years. In that time we became very close friends, living in the same town, we would car pool during 70's gas shorage, during snow storms or when one our cars was being service.

I will always remember him as being the closest thing to a father, since l lost mine just before I met Carl. He advised me and guided me along my young adulthood during the time we worked together.

There were a lot of things he taught me, one I still remember to this day was the one when I booked off from work during the second shift and he had to fill in for me. Well the next day he called me into his office, told me to sit down, turned his chair so that his back was to me and said, and I quote "the next time you call out your name better be in the obituary column" then without turning around told me that's all you may leave now. To this day I have never again booked out of work and I'm still working at 78. A lesson well executed which I never forgot.

To his family my thoughts are with you, I will never forget the lessens he give me during our time together.

Until we met again Carl R.I.P. old friend.
