Household Names

Here are some people I saw while working at the Everett plant during the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s:

Just by coincidence I saw my Uncle Bob, who worked in Renton and was visiting the Everett factory with a friend in my area. Unfortunately, I was only able to spend a minute with them as I was off taking care of business in the area.

On another occasion I saw my cousin Jenny at Everett and just found out that she was working for Boeing and was visiting on business from her Seattle location.

On a couple of occasions I was able to meet for lunch with my cousin Chris, who also worked at Boeing at other locations.

Famous people I saw while working at Everett included Boeing President T.A. Wilson, Russian President Yeltsin, George W. Bush before he was elected president and Al Gore (on a separate occasion). I almost had the opportunity to see President Bill Clinton when he visited the factory, but I was working on the flight line and we weren't allowed to cross over the freeway bridge while he was on site...Oh well, we had work to do.
