After 28 years on the job at Blaze Products, Gilbert Ellis said he knew it was time to hang it up and retire earlier this month.
"I just celebrated my 92nd birthday on Aug. 15, so I figured it was about time to quit," said Ellis.
Of course, this wasn't the first time Ellis had wrapped up service at a job.
Ellis worked at Ashland Oil for 30 years and then moved back to Shelbyville with his family. At that point, however, he still had three boys.
"I needed the income to educate and bring up these boys," he said.
