Retirement Today after 70 Years

John Beckam, 87, who started work in 1936 for 25 cents an hour at an ice cream parlor in downtown Denver, is finally retiring today after 14 years and three months as a concierge at the Barclay Towers. The Rocky Mountain News sent a photographer to record the event, and Aaron Mosko, 94, a Barclay resident whose sister invented the Barbie doll, remembered working at another establishment just across the street from John's. As residents came and went, offering John best wishes, the two gentlemen reminisced about the passing of many, many years.
