Dear Janie, When I was hired at Wheeling Pittsburgh Steel in 2004, I met Tim on a walk through of the plant. Although I had decades of steel making experience, coming into a different plant was difficult. Fortunately for me Tim helped me feel welcome. In the process we became good friends. I will always cherish our friendship, whether golfing or just talking to each other about many common interest’s. May you find nothing but fairways and greens my friend. Very Respectfully, Harry McFarland.
