Working is living, say elderly employees

June 24, 2005

Albany- Many of us dream of retiring and leaving work behind in our twilight years.

Some people, like 84-year-old Sam Farkas, live to work. Farkas is the Southwest Georgia Council on Aging's older worker of the year. As the CEO of Container Waste Services, Farkas still handles payroll and paying the bills.

He says he works because he enjoys the work.

"I enjoy everything," he said. "I've been enjoying work for 68, 70 years."

The Quickie Restaurant on North Slappey Boulevard was recognized as the older Employer of the year. Both winners will go to the state competition at St. Simons.
