Lakeville Kitchen & Bath has been very fortunate to have in our company, for the past twenty-five years, Mr. Norman Pitzer. Norman has been our comptroller for all these years and is now retiring and relocating, with his wife, Irene, to Seattle, Washington, to join their two sons, Raymond and Josh, already residing there.
Every company should be as fortunate as ours, to have a Norman Pitzer, for all the years we did. Personally, for each of the twenty-five years, Norman was by my side as a trusting, capable, thoughtful, respectful and dignified right hand confidant. Each and every one of my employees was equally lucky; as much as Norman had my best interest in mind, he too had each of his colleague best interest also in mind, making certain that every employee based decision was carefully considered and fairly administered.
Lakeville will miss this extraordinary individual, but we all know that Norman’s decision was made only after considerable thought – he was ready to be with his children in Seattle and leave behind a home at Lakeville where he was so loved, respected, welcomed and appreciated.
All good things must come to an end. The river of time keeps moving on. I, and all of Norman’s colleagues at Lakeville, know , how fortunate we all have been, and how much he has contributed to the success of this company and each of us. May he enjoy his new home and retirement for many, many happy, healthy and wonderful years to come.
