The Luckiest Man In The World
by Cheval John
I can truly say that I am proud that Eardley A. John is my father.
He has been there for us during the good times and the bad.
He has taught me lessons that I am trying to emulate today.
One lesson that sticks to my mind is “Never say that you can’t do it.”
The lesson behind that happened thirty-three years ago.
He was promoted to division manager of a industrial store after the previous manager was sacked for disclosed reasons.
He was there from the very beginning when the store opened in 1977 on St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands.
It was a part of a chain of stores that was based in Puerto Rico.
When he became manager, he just went out with a can do attitude and grow the store from within.
Over the years, the stores was acquired by a global industrial corporation and he has learned new things along the way.
His hard work and dedication to us and his work is an example that I want to emulate
Hopefully, I can do what he did in a different capacity.
