    Don Mills. I worked with him in the early 90's and he taught me the importance of always striving to do the best job I can. I haven't talked to him in a few years. He's living in Phoenix somewhere. Maybe I'll look him up someday and see what he's up to. May be retired by now.

    I could do 1/2 dozen other things and do a few more. This is the one thing I can call all the shots on. Things are changing but I will never leave HVAC

    Frank Purdue. Had nothing to do with HVAC but was my role model for handling union influences in business.

    I fell into this job with my Navy training. I had no idea it was so much fun. My dad wanted me to be a mechanical engineer. Well, I'm glad I have the education, but I'd much rather be doing this. I'll pass on the desk jockey jobs.
