Copart Eugene in Oregon celebrated a very special birthday in September. Cecil, a subhauler who works with the location, shared his 75th birthday with the team.
Cecil has been a committed driver with Copart for more than 12 years and has been a long-haul truck driver for 58 years. In addition to his time as a driver, Cecil is also a U.S. military veteran who served in the United States Army for three years. Throughout his life, Cecil has overcome cancer and other health issues and is committed to his goal to work in his truck until he is at least 80 years old.
As a gift for his birthday this year, the Copart family gave Cecil a custom hat with his nickname “Cecil with the Diesel” on the front.
“He loved it! We want to thank him for all he does,” said April Brock, General Manager of Copart Eugene. “Cecil is the only one who will tow over the mountain when the snow is falling hard, and we have a great partnership with him!”
Cecil says, “The secret to living long and strong: Don’t smoke, don’t drink, eat healthy, work hard and you’ve just got to keep moving!”
Happy Birthday Cecil!
