GLADWIN – Friends, family members and colleagues turned out to honor retiring Animal Control Officer Ron Taylor Thursday, as he leaves his position after 35 years with Gladwin County. Taylor spent five years in the Navy before starting in Corrections at Gladwin County in February of 1977. From there, he took the position at Animal Control, where he has remained ever since. Guests enjoyed the luncheon, sharing stories and reminiscing over Taylor’s 35-year career. Taylor himself also had some stories to tell. “People are surprised at the animals I have had at the end of my pole over the years,” he said. “Eagles, a hawk, an owl, even a badger.” Former colleagues Jan Burkhart and Cliff Rosin were also there to share stories and laugh over the many fun adventures they had while working with Taylor. Rosin and Taylor worked together for 8.5 years, while Burkhart and Taylor worked together 20 years. “We had a good time,” Burkhart commented. “We had a lot of fun.” Rosin agreed, adding, “It took a lot of dedication to do that job for so long.” Taylor was also presented with a Certificate of Appreciation from the Gladwin County Board of Commissioners. After 35 years, Taylor says he is going to spend his time now ice fishing in the winter, gardening in the summer, and enjoying his grandkids – two and one on the way – all year long. “Mainly the grandkids though,” Taylor said, smiling.
