Our Beloved Bob Hom Is Retiring Posted on June 24, 2011September 22, 2015 by Mary Sullivan Bob’s career at the DECC officially began 33 years ago. He was hired in 1978 as a house electrician and later became operations director. Prior to his full-time position at the DECC, he worked as a stagehand for the DECC as early as 1976 – his first event having been a KISS concert. His knowledge of the facility, his sense of humor, his positive outlook on life and his ability to handle even the most difficult of situations with grace will be missed by all who have worked with him over the years. Bob is retiring from his operations director position and will work part-time with a friend in his tugboat business, something Bob has wanted to do since his childhood. Please join us in celebrating his retirement at an Open House on Wednesday, June 29 from 5:00p.m. – 7:00p.m. alongside the William A. Irvin.
