"The secret is that I had the pleasure of coming to work everyday and doing something that I enjoy doing. Some people never find that. I have been very well blessed," said Osmon. "I got to come into work, and I got to do something that I enjoyed every day."

Osmon says for retirement, he plans to take up golf and get some much-deserved rest.
