Dear editor:

There is a man I know who, over the years, has taught me a thing or two.

He is a man just doing his job, a job that doesn’t always include praise and accolades but instead a job that is done right and always on time.

This man showed me that working hard and working right will pay off in the long run.

I know this because I have applied his wisdom to my own 20-year trucking career, and like he, I am accident-free.

I listen to his stories and advice, but not about how fast he drives or how he gives his dispatcher a hard time, but instead I hear stories of life and all that goes with it.

You see, this man was just doing his job and sometimes I feel that drivers today lose sight of what is really important.

One day this man will not be with us and it won’t be a loss for the trucking world, because the trucking world never knew him – he just did his job quietly and simply.

But for me, the loss would be great – a friend, a fellow trucker and most of all, my dad.

Chris Gray, CLM Carriers
