    The Four Million Mile Man - Tri Cities

    Several months back, Gene and Carolyn Carrier finished yet another in about 40 years of late-night dinners.

    Gene’s job as a tractor-trailer driver for UPS amounts to 11 to 13 hour days, which leads to those late-night dinners at home.

    “Don’t you think it’s time to retire,” Carolyn said to her beloved husband.

    The question, which came more as a statement, surprised Gene.

    “We had never even discussed it,” Gene said. “The next morning I said, ‘I’ll tell you what. I’ll fill out the paperwork.’ I held onto it for about 30 days. Finally, I filled it out.”

    And so in March, Gene Carrier will officially end his 42-year career with UPS.
