Primary Electric / 60 Lakes Electric Here's an electrifying story for ya! Uncle Dick May, (owner of 60 lakes electric) and Auntie RoseMary May, have always been good friends of mine.  We go back many years.                                                             When I decided to buy kenyon's I first called up Uncle Dick and Uncle Jim (retired plumber) and had them both meet me at kenyon's to go through the entire building and give me their thoughts and input!

He always said, Only you Barb, Only you, Would... take on this big of a project, referring to Kenyon's Restoration. (smile) I know he meant that with love!  Although his health was already failing, there was no way he was going to let anyone touch this project that wasn't totally qualified.  He did alot of the work himself and oversaw the work of anyone that worked for him! It's all about the safety!  

Another thing he always said was, we can't let anything happen to Kenyon's!  We've got to keep her safe and up and running!

And let it be noted:  Kenyon's would not be here today if Uncle Dick wouldn't have gone through the wiring so carefully. We were all surprised that it didn't catch fire long ago… Unfortunately, the day came upon us when another electrician was going to need to be involved to carry on Uncle Dicks project list at Kenyon's.  They would have to be qualified and willing to undertake the job as sincerely as he did!

Then came along Bruce (Owner of Primary Electric) a well established electrician, he was recommended to us from a confidential source and we all valued his opinion!  Let me tell you, he was the light at the end of a tunnel for us.  

He and Uncle Dick grew close and Bruce ended up taking on many projects for Uncle Dick in addition to the Kenyon's project. Uncle Dick stated many times that Bruce was heaven sent!  He admired the knowledge and the quality craftsmanship that Bruce displayed in all of his work. This meant alot to Uncle Dick, he felt confidence in all of Bruce's work.  Since then, Uncle Dick has passed on but I am comforted with the thought that he will always be a part of this ol' building and we know he left us in good hands with Bruce! He will be missed…  Thanks Bruce for taking on Kenyon's and helping us to preserve it's being!  We appreciate the fact that you care!
