Murle Elliott has never been one to flit, like a bird, from job to job.
When he was only 17 years old, he found a job he loved – operating a bull dozer – and 69 years later he’s still going strong, sometimes putting in 40-60 hours a week.
“I feel better when I’m getting up and going to work,” said Elliott, who lives on Jericho Road. “If there’s work for me, I’ll do it.”
Elliott’s love for the big tractors began when he worked on a relative’s farm at Fern Creek.
