Howard Seabrook from Abbott House Elmsford IRA has worked at the Stop and Shop of Tarrytown for twenty years. To commemorate his years of service he was given the choice to select a gift of his preference. Howard selected a vibrating insert cushion to soothe his aches and pains that he endured over the twenty years. However, if you asked Howard if he is tired of working; the answer would certainly be “No, I’m never tired, I am the man”. Howard would make most of us who complain on a daily basis about not having a job or not making enough money take note of his perseverance. Howard’s passion and motivation for work is a testament of his exceptional dedication.
In addition, we had a 20th year anniversary celebration at his residence with his Abbott House and biological family to highlight his employment. We danced, sang, and toasted Howard for his service to the community. Howard gave a wonderful speech at the end of the evening and he said “I’m so blessed to have you all in my life”. Howard has been a member of the Abbott House family since 1993 and began his employment at Stop and Shop in 1994.
As the Assistant Manager at the Elmsford IRA where Howard Seabrook resides I can say that “Howard has a magical personality which is infectious. He is the type of person that can walk into a room of dreariness and transform it into an excited environment. My time at the Elmsford, IRA with Howard has made a positive impact in my life. . No matter how I feel on any given day, as soon as I interact with Howard, I feel like everything is going to be alright because of the attitude he has towards people. Howard demonstrates joy and love for life living to the fullest every day. Howard is a tremendous individual that you only get to meet once in your life time. Finally, Howard loves to laugh no matter what it is; laughing with him is something we do together, but I seem to obtain the fulfillment.
The Abbott House family is proud of his achievements and continues to support him with his future endeavors.
