Gary Fortner, Estimator
Back in 1991, Gary worked for Long Painting Company as a field painter on the Frigate at Todd Ship Yard. Shortly after that, he had the opportunity to manage the Supply Maintenance Facility. Gary says “Those where the best times in my life”. He had the opportunity to work and meet everyone at LPC from the grounds keeper to field workers to the management team. During his time at LPC Gary worked on the Kingdome renovation, the Bill Gates residence, the Nimitz and every project size in-between. He learned what a special place LPC is. Gary stated “We had our good times, and our sad times, but we always came out of it as a family.”
Gary is now working in the Service Center as an Estimator.
He has two sons who also work in the construction industry; he enjoys spending as much time with them as he can. He is also a grandfather to a very special little girl by the name of Paislee who keeps his family very busy!
Just a few hobbies he enjoys with family and friends is hunting, fishing and motorcycle riding.
Since Gary has been back at Long Painting Company he has been very happy. He says “It is great to be back home!”
Long Painting Company is excited to have both of you on board!
