After 27 years, today is my last day with Rinnai...

In my Manuf. Rep business, I introduced the Rinnai line to the six New England States in '91. I represented them for 20 years and sold my part of the agency in '11 and moved West, chasing my children. Since that time I have been a consultant to Rinnai. I have never been a direct employee. Professionally, Rinnai has been the best thing to happen to me and I have loved selling and supporting their products. It has been a great ride! I'll be 70 soon and my wife says I am retiring. I am not so sure. She likes me, but she doesn't like me all the time;)

    Hi Jack, It sounds like you've got or are formulating plans for ways to stay in hot water somehow! Are you considering writing "The Ultimate Guide to Tankless Heaters", or...? B)

    Yours, Larry

    Jack you will be greatly missed. I have sure enjoyed my association with you over the years. You have always been a great help to me and to others. The training sessions you did for me were some of the best I have experienced. You always emphasized the hands on approach to learning. Thanks for everything enjoy retirement. I should be following you soon.

    Congratulations on your retirement Jack. I wish I could have had more training from you , but am glad I had at least the one. You are going to be missed for sure. Have some much deserved fun, and spend more time with your family.

    Thank you all for the kind words. Tim, we do go back some;) Rick I may yet make it back to Alaska. All four of the West Coast Reps have asked if I would consider helping out occasionally. I will also speak with some of the local contractors. Everyone is short handed today and if there is an occasional nice pipe job they need help with I'd go for that. A "Guide", Larry, probably not but I may do some videos. At this point, anything I do will be part-time. Well, other than hanging out here!! Again, Thanks! Oh, and Dan, there was nothing elegant about it. Far from it!

    27 years, you say? It's about time! I can see you don't like to make snap decisions. May God bless your future!
