Brian and Diane Thayer met each other while working for A&L Great Lakes, got married, and have been with the company for 34 and 35 (off and on) years respectively. They will retire together at the end of September.
Brian started as an Ag Department Technician in 1986, then became an Environmental Chemist is 1990, and for the last 19 years, he has been the Senior Quality Chemist. His meticulous attention to detail makes him a great fit for this role and he has done a tremendous job.
He says the best part of being part of the A&L Great Lakes team is everyone working together to get the job done every day. His favorite memory from his time here is meeting Diane, of course. They met his first day on the job and were married 2 years later. They now have 2 children and 2 grandchildren, with grandchildren 3 and 4 on the way.
When he retires, he plans to catch a few more fish, hike a few more trails (near and far), and spend more time with his family. He’d also like to develop a new hobby or two.
We wish you the best Brian. You will be missed
