A Personal Look Back at 2019

In several ways I am sad to see 2019 fade away, but such is life. 2019 was a year of personal growth I had never experienced before. Doyles Production closed in January, then five months of project management for Verizon business in Plano..

So what was Doyles Production? It was a fabrication facility in Jasper, Texas that built high pressure pressure vessels for oil field operations. The vessels were anywhere from 3 – 6 inches thick, and took weeks, sometimes months to build. Doyles was a wonderful place to work, and the company provided high paying wages to the Jasper Texas area. As with everything else in life, everything must come to an end. In January of 2019 the workers were called into the lunch room and given the news that the company was closing.
