Custodian Retires After 39 Years and No Vacation

Custodian Retires After 39 Years and No Vacation

Posted: Updated:
PRICHARD, ALABAMA -

For one local school custodian working hard is just in his nature. It's a motto he lives by.

In 39 years at Faulkner Technical High School William Spencer has never taken a vacation and has very rarely used sick days.

"I started in 74 and in 84 I was hospitalized for 3 months and since 84 I've been off a week I was a diabetic and I stayed in the hospital on that," said Spencer.

But he will have a lot of time on his hands in a couple weeks when he retires.

"Well I hate to leave but I guess it is just one of those things it is time for me to get out," said Spencer. "As a young man I was brought up working hard. It is just in my blood to do that."

Spencer will be leaving with a heck of a nest egg. Because of his unused days he'll retire with an additional 23 months going toward his retirements.
