In discussing his time with the city, Bob states, “It has been an honor and a privilege to have had a hand in providing clean drinking water to Cañon City and to all of its citizens. I love what I do and I have had a lot of opportunities to work with great individuals; I will miss a lot of people.”
Bob plans to enjoy this next chapter of his life with his wife Laura. He will also be spending time tackling a number of home projects. We wish Bob the best in his retirement and all his future endeavors!
City Administrator Ryan Stevens added, “In this day and age, it is hard to find employees who will dedicate 30+ years of their life to one organization. The City is losing a great employee with a tremendous amount of institutional knowledge when Bob retires. Bob always put our citizens first. Thank you, Bob, for all your hard work, dedication, and years of service. We will miss you!”
