Retirement

Retirement

Rodger Hoffert will officially retire on May 31, 2017. He started his journey at Vilandre Fuel and Heating on October 4, 1976. Over half of his 40 plus year employment was spent delivering home heating oil to customers throughout the area. Climbing over fences, trudging through chest high snow drifts, dragging that long, heavy delivery hose and nozzle to thousands of fuel oil customers. He could not wait to get back on that oil truck every morning! The better part of his employment was also spent running our seamless gutter division. Rodger personally traveled to Colorado to bring back to Grand Forks one of the first seamless gutter machines used in the upper valley. Between delivering home heating oil and installing seamless gutter, we are sure that Rodger has been on or near to just about every single block in the Greater Grand Forks/East Grand Forks area, taking care of our customers in your neighborhood for over 40 years. Thank you Rodger for your dedication, commitment and loyalty to our customers and to our family at Vilandre Heating, Air Conditioning, Plumbing and Seamless Gutter. Rodger plans to spend more time with his wife, Alice, their four children and their ten grandchildren. Travel is also high on their bucket list. Congratulations Rodger! What a wonderful career! We have been blessed!

Stop by our Open House at 701 N. 7th St., on Friday, May 26th, from 2pm to 5pm.
