Well we have finally set a date for my retirement. I will officially retire January ,1 2021. We will continue to hold classes until then. I hope to find someone who wants to take over my business. We have had a couple of inquires. We will not be doing anymore Gas Technology classes for the Limited Service License for the state of RI. All our other classes are still on if you are interested contact me at timmcelwain@gastcri.com. I look forward to seeing some of you soon

    Will you still be selling your books and training material?

    I'm reading this with mixed emotions. On one hand I'm happy for you because you've certainly earned it. On the other, I hate to see you go.
    I'm my opinion, you are to the gas industry what Gil Carson was to hydronics.
    God speed, brother.

    It's one of those happy sad moments. It's sad Tim, that the great resource you are with your wealth of knowledge, will not be as accessible, if even at all. Yet I'm happy because after years of hard work and dedication to our industry, both you and Judy deserve to have time to yourselves to enjoy your live's with your kids, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

    I plan to still hang out here helping anyone I can. I will still have my manuals for sale. I may even sit down and tell the story of my life. It sure has been quite a journey.

    "treasurable.." I like that!

    All the best, Tim. I hope you have a comfortable retirement surrounded by the people that love you.

    If you have a house in the Poconos, Hudson River Valley or alongside the mighty Passaic, I'll come and visit.
