LAKE PARK MAN, 90, HAS WORKED AT SAME JOB FOR 65 YEARS

Hank Libby, who is 90. Fellow employees say he outworks them.

Not only is Hank Libby 90 years old and working full-time, five-and-a-half days a week, but he’s worked at the same company for 65 years.

Go to Maschmeyer Concrete and you’ll see him fixing forklifts or whatever heavy machinery needs attention. Until a few years ago, you could see him climbing on top of 62-foot-tall silos to fix things.

“Finally I told Hank, ‘you probably shouldn’t climb anymore,’ ” said company president Troy Maschmeyer Jr., whose father hired Hank five years before Troy was born.

Libby, a Korean War veteran, hails from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. His grandfather owned sawmills and farms and Hank’s father also was a farmer, in Sault Ste. Marie, on the Canadian border.

Troy’s father, Troy Maschmeyer Sr., was a builder in that area. Sr. came looking for equipment at a company where Libby worked and was impressed with the young man’s knowledge of machinery.

As the story goes, Maschmeyer offered Libby a job, but Libby replied, ’Sir, as long as this man I work for has a job for me, I’m loyal and I’m going to work for him.”
