Sam's Story

There comes a time in every man's life when he knows it's time to retire. Sam Sorice had such an epiphany a couple of years back. He had just returned from the office on S. College St., beaten and sore, after completing his mission to pick up a 110 lb. - ten foot long roll of heat shrink material mistakenly delivered there. As always, Sam did indeed accomplish the task, but he admittedly required help and struggled mightily with the unwieldy roll. Soon after, Sam announced his retirement date.

As a young man Sam attended the US Naval Academy at Annapolis but decided that Navy life was not for him. Sam came to RG after the difficult decision to close his family owned trucking business. So on January 5, 2004, Sam started working with us at the Shop. As it turns out, Sam was the perfect fit for RG. He brought with him a lifetime of experience, the principles of hard work and dependability. Sam is most likely the only person in the company who can wear the title of universally being liked and admired by everyone. He did his job exceptionally well and always with a great sense of humor and a good attitude.

So now what? Sam has an extensive "Honey Do" list to get started on. But roaring engines and hot exhaust will be music to his ears until the day he dies. So next to Patty, of course, his devotion will be to his lovingly restored Dodge Power Wagons. He has a few beauties and is also involved in related restoration clubs and we may even see his pride and joys in a Washington city event or parade.

Sam, Patty – you worked hard, played by the rules and did well for yourselves. It’s time to spend the kids’ retirement, go have some fun and break a few rules. Goodness knows you’ve earned the right.
