After 36 years with the Federal civil service Natural Resource Conservation Service, John Suchor Jr., Construction Control Inspector in Grand Forks North Dakota has announced his retirement from the Federal government effective January 31st, 2012.

John started his career with the SCS in 1975 working as a WAE part time employee for the Towner field office of McHenry County. John was trained with some of the best staff in the State who taught me the true mission of the agency then while in the Towner field office. John was grateful to Dennis Roscoe, Lyder Ring, and Lorinda Haman for those 2 summers.

John then applied for a Soil Conservation Technician position in Larimore, ND. He took a position there in the fall of 1976. John worked as a soil conservation technician until the fall of 1979.

He then applied for a civil engineering technician position with the Watershed Project Office in Larimore at this time. John worked as a civil engineering technician/construction control inspector with the Grand Forks project office from 1979 to 2012 on over 50 watershed engineering projects of which two flood control dams were built.

John worked under the supervision of Roger Thompson, Project Engineer until his retirement.

John would like to thank the staff in the State office, project office and field office for the privilege to work together and accomplish our mission together in harmony. He also would like to thank his family for putting up with him all the times he was away from home in the early morning and late hours performing his job.
