Lynn Culp, a 40-year employee of Sangre de Cristo Electric, retired June 1. Lynn was the company purchasing agent. He began his career in the warehouse, pulling materials for lineworkers to use at work sites. Lynn was also instrumental in deploing some of the first business computers for use at SDCEA, and in later years provided back-up IT support.

“It has been a good career. Everyone here has been like family,” Lynn said at his retirement send-off.

Coworkers said they enjoyed working with Lynn over the years. “We worked together in a 10×10 room for a long time. We never had a problem, never had an issue. It’s been great working with you,” Line Superintendent Dana Douty said.

“It was a lot of fun. I’m glad to have worked with you,” Curt Graham, a former SDCEA employee said. Graham is now a Job Training and Safety Instructor for the Colorado Rural Electric Association, based in Denver.

“Lynn was involved in every major change here over decades. He had a major impact on the company,” CEO Paul Erickson added.

We will miss you, Lynn. All the best in your retirement.
