Happy Birthday Yazzie

Happy Birthday Yazzie!

yazzie

Happy Birthday to one of the most proficient, hard working mechanics I have ever met. If you've ever been to Flag Truck Center, chances are you've met (or seen) Yazzie, he practically lives here. Yazzie is a certified Mac & Volvo service technician. He is an expert in his field and well respected by his coworkers for his abilities and experience. He has been with Flag Truck Center for over 10 years, his knowledge is priceless.
It seems like Yazzie can do anything, from oil changes to rebuilding an entire engine, he's the go-to guy. Heavy duty truck repair is Yazzie's second nature.
Yazzie is a proud father, rancher and bull rider. He takes time to watch his kids play numerous sports, ride horses on his ranch located near Page, AZ and enjoys a little crazy-adventure by riding bulls and attending rodeo's.
Yazzie has a contagious laugh and a big heart. We know he'll show up to work every day, he is always here and this place isn't the same when he's gone (and that's rare).
Happy Birthday Yazzie-Motto! Hope it's fabulous.

Happy Birthday Brian

Happy Birthday Brian!

Brian

Brian celebrated his birthday today and it was yummy! Cream filled, strawberry-cake-kind-of-yummy. However, I do have to admit that although the cake was good, it was no where near as tasty as the treats Brian's wife brings in to share with us here at work. Brian's wife can bake and it is the most delicious baking I have EVER had, no lies! So I'm sure Brian was spoiled with something terribly delicious for his birthday, and he deserves it!
Brian is a very hard working, versatile and eager team player. He has been with High Tech for 3.5 years, mainly as a local yard driver for one of our top customers. Hard working describes Brian to a 'T'. This man never turns down extra work, from long shifts at the yard to driving over-the-road and filling in for other drivers, his name is consistently on the schedule, always doing something and helping out somewhere. Brian is a HUGE asset to this company and we appreciate all his hard work and efforts… without him, things would not run as smoothly as they do. Thank you for all your hard work, your good energy and happy birthday to a good man! Hope it's wonderful!

Happy Birthday Larry

LarryBday

Happy Birthday to a well respected, very knowledgable, easy going, and super funny guy! Larry celebrated his birthday this past weekend and we had cake on Monday to prove it!
Larry has been with Flag Truck Center for almost 7 years as the parts and service manager. He is well known around town for his expertise in the heavy duty truck repair industry, he' been doing it nearly his entire life. Flag Truck Center is very lucky to have Larry on their team; he's a great work colleague, mentor and friend to all he works with.
Larry has three beautiful granddaughters of whom he talks highly of and adores greatly. Larry enjoys hanging out with his family, riding quads at the cinders and working at Flag Truck Center {wink, wink}. I can say that without Larry around here, it would be a a very dull environment. Larry keeps us on our toes, from the daily news to the best fishing holes and all the good/funny stuff in between, there is never a dull moment.
Hope your birthday was fabulous Larry, from your friends and colleagues here at High Tech and Flag Truck, we send you many, many happy wishes for an amazing year ahead!

Happy Birthday Rod!

Happy Birthday Rod!
& welcome aboard :)
rod
Rod celebrated his birthday today and he started working here at High Tech today too!
Rod may be our newest team member here at HTTI but he is a well known friend/colleague to all of us! Rod is a familiar face as he's been trucking/logging/equipment hauling for years and years (even though he's only 24! wink, wink).
I've personally known Rod my whole life and have many fond memories of growing up skiing together and hanging out with his family.
He brings a wealth of knowledge to the High Tech team and invaluable experience.
It's great to have another familiar guy on our team, and it's even better to have a friend.
Happy Birthday Rod, hope it was great and WELCOME TO THE TEAM! It's great to have you here… we're looking forward to what the future brings.

Happy Birthday Danny!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DANNY!!!!!
Danny
Danny has been with High Tech, as a professional driver, for over 10 years! And what a great 10 years it's been. Danny brings so much life and joy to the otherwise dull days. From his witty sense of humor to his great stories from growing up and learning about life, it's never uneventful with Danny.
Danny makes friends wherever he goes and is even requested by our customers "I'd like Danny to deliver this load if he's available".
Danny is a proud father to three daughters and grandfather to four beautiful kiddos. Danny has many accomplishments in his life and we are proud to have him here as part of the High Tech team. We can all vouch to the fact that without Danny, things really wouldn't be the same!!!
Happy Birthday Danny, hope it's wonderful and that the year ahead is also a good one for you.

Happy Birthday Lane

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LANE!
lane
When I say Lane has been a part of this company for a long time (and the previous sister company), I truly mean it! I have know Lane my entire life. And even before that, Lane and Pam went to grade school together back in Star Valley, Wyoming… and the fact that they live in the same town and work together, it seems crazy. For more than 35 years Lane has been trucking, logging, driving and whatever else it's taken. Lane was the loader operator in the summers of the good old logging days, and drove over-the-road in the winters. He's been with High Tech since the doors opened in 1995 and prior to that he was with our sister company from day one.
Lane puts the pro in professional. He is meticulous about his work, from maintaining the equipment to knowing his runs on the road and the fuel mileage and best prices to fuel up. Lane doesn't take short cuts, he never has and it really shows, in everything he does … and he does it well! Lane runs a T600 KW that doesn't look more than a day old. It's always clean, sharp and in great working condition. Honest, reliable and hard working are only a few of many words that we could use to describe Lane.
Hope your Birthday is grand! Thanks for all the memories and so many great years.

Happy Birthday James

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAMES!!!
JamesB
James turned the big 37 today! He maintains a youthful look of 25, and I'm sure he still gets carded when he goes out (lucky guy!)
James started with High Tech in September of 2011 maintaining the yard in Bellemont for one of our top customers. He is well thought of and received many compliments for his hard work ethic. James drove the yard spotter up until May of 2012 when he was recruited by our sister company, Flag Truck Center and is currently training to be a professional mechanic.
James proudly showed us his new tattoo that he finished on his shoulder, a birthday gift from his talented brother.
We enjoy having James as part of the Flag Truck and High Tech team. James is well liked by all that work with him here and I'm sure he has many friends who'd say the same.
If you see a custom, white, Honda Civic zipping by you on Route 66; loud and fast, that's probably our James!
Hope your year is great James, we're glad you're part of the team. Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Danny

HAPPY DAY DANNY!!!!
DannyD
Danny had a big birthday this year (but the exact number will remain our little secret).
Danny started back up with High Tech just recently however, he is no stranger to these parts. Most of us have known Danny since the mid 80's (like 1985 to be exact) when he was part of the logging crew back in the 'good ole days'.
Danny was also here at High Tech's beginnings in 1995 and teamed with Pam on many road trips. On one of those trips Danny acquired his infamous nickname "Beetlejuice". It's still what we call him to this day!
Not only is Danny part of the family here at High Tech, he is a well traveled truck driver. He's been all over this country and knows most parts of the United States better than anyone here, it seems he's done it all.
Danny is also an active grandfather, raising his beautiful granddaughter out in the country east of Flagstaff with his wife Sherri. This summer they will be expanding their family and welcoming another sweet girl into their loving home. I can honestly say that his granddaughters are very lucky to have him in their lives, he's very proud of them and is making sure they have a good life.
We all enjoy Danny's stories and great sense of humor. It's good to have you back here Danny.
Hope your birthday is wonderful!

Happy Birthday Cartee

Happy Birthday Cartee!!
cartee
Today our fellow team member, Cartee, celebrated his birthday. Cartee is a valued employee of High Tech, working locally spotting trailers and performing yard maintenance for a valued, long term customer of High Tech's. Cartee is going on his eighth year with High Tech, wow, 8 YEARS! Cartee is not only a professionally driver he is also a dedicated husband, father and son.
Cartee is very much a family man. He dearly loves his mom and speaks highly of her quite often. Cartee plants his mom's garden for her every year, the beginning of June (that's her secret to a successful garden in a rather hard to grow area, as Flagstaff is dry and at 7,000 feet…) we've all taken gardening advise from Cartee and his mom.
Cartee is also an avid hunter and for as often as I see that boat behind his pick-up truck on Friday's, I would venture to guess he's a fisherman too.
Cartee and his wife, Nancy, are great people and we are happy to have Cartee on our team. Thank you for your hard work Cartee, here's to another year and many more trips to Laughlin! Hope your day was wonderful!

Happy Birthday Roger

Happy Birthday Roger!

Roger celebrated his birthday over-the-road on the 13th of April and was finally able to “have his cake” and celebrate with the High Tech team today.


Roger has been with the High Tech family for a long time, and when I say long time I really do mean A LONG time. Roger started out with our sister company, back in the 80’s. He was what we called a “shop boy” and started work with us back then at the young, ripe age of 18!!! Wow how time flies.
Roger has been with High Tech since before it was High Tech… now that’s a long time Roger!
Roger is well know around town and in the trucking world. He’s logged, hauled chips, dry vans, maintained yards, tractor maintenance and more; he’s our “all around” guy and is capable of pretty much any task that’s needed at the time. Roger is a very valuable member of our team.
He is well know for his professional driving skills and expertise in the trucking industry. He has a wealth of knowledge and we are grateful to have him here with us at High Tech!
Happy Birthday Roger & thank you for all you do.

Doug primarily drives over-the-road, running unit 84, a Blue T-800 Kenworth.
