Hi David, nope, not Bill Hawke.
I rarely actually interfaced with him since most of us carriers were just adopted by the previous carrier, shown the ropes, then set off on our own.
However, the gist of it is I was recalling a time where we had some seriously awful couple of people on the route I had. They were nightmares. This employee I'm trying to recall watch-guarded us kids from these people and I recently found a touching note he left for me after a particularly awful encounter with these customers (well, they weren't for long). These people were scary.
It's weird, I know, but I was just randomly thinking that if there was still a chance to thank this gentleman years later it might be nice to let him know he had a really positive impact on me in my first job, especially now that I'm a parent of a 12 year old. It just seemed like something I should do to thank him.
