Farrer: Forty years and still going strong

On right: Glenn Grant Farrer is 40 years on the job non-stop. He is seen here on the jobsite with Buckie Stanley from Anadarko.

Glenn Grant Farrer has worked for the company that is now known as Nabors Well Services Company for the past 40 years and is still going. He began working for this company on June 1, 1973 and during the past 40 years has never taken a sick day and only two weeks of vacation over that entire span of time. Glenn is what you call a dedicated worker and you will find him on weekends and holidays covering for others, so that they can have time with their families. He is known as the go to person if someone is in question on what needs to be done and safety is always at the top of the list when it comes to his crews. He has brought many men that started as labors on his crew to supervisor positions.

He has a firm belief that you need to teach them the whole job, so that they can advance and be productive. "Success is simple do what is right, the right way, at the right time." His famous saying is "don't sweat the small stuff because it is all small stuff." Glenn is the definition of work ethic and few can claim such a day in and day out record.

Glenn is also the proud father of five sons and one daughter. His son Phillip is a doctor, Kevin played professional football, Neil is a consultant for Berry Petroleum Corp., Kerry is self employed as a contractor, Tony works for Price Auto as a mechanic and KayCee works for McDonalds. Glenn adopted Tony and KayCee when they were very young and has raised them on his own for the past 12 years. He has residences in Orangeville and Roosevelt which allows him the flexibility on being where the work is. He is honored and respected by all that deal with him.

Glenn is also known for his generous heart and is always donating to such things as Angel Tree, Run Walk and Roll for disability equipment, school projects, taking food to the elderly, giving to families in need for Christmas, donating for parties for Headstart, taking care of the elderly neighbors, donating to the food bank, paying fees for elementary children who don't have money for extracurricular activities, and much more.

Congratulations to a hardworking man.
