Phillip Marbry, right, pictured with Assistant Director Gary Jackson, recently retired from Tipton County Public Works after 46 years on the job. He started on Oct. 2, 1972, working as a laborer on one of the county road crews. He later transferred to the Tipton County Landfill and remained there as a laborer until his retirement. Phillip was a valued employee in the day-to-day operations of the landfill and was well-known by many of the citizens of the county. He always greeted everyone with a smile and a helping hand.
