I worked for Mr. Schockey at the Whiting Plover paper mill from 1965 to 1970. He was a great boss and I did miss him when I left. May the Lord bless his soul.

Joe "the slave driver" Shockey as the cabin shingling crew so lovingly called him was among the few old timers I got to meet in my lifetime who came from a generation of real men who did amazing things for country and family. Joe and his family were very appreciative of the roofing work his son Reed coerced us into doing ;) It was a pleasure meeting him and the entire family.
