Mr. Dan HOESLI, the well known Grayling Standard Oil Agent, will be retired on annuity October 11th.
Mr. HOELSI is one of the pioneer agents of the Saginaw Division, was with the company back in the old lumbering days when Grayling was one of the big lumber towns. Also, during these early days, Dan, as he is known to friends and acquaintances drove a team of horses and a tank wagon, working many a hot summer's day and a cold winter's night to take care of his friends and neighbors with petroleum products.
Dan has also seen the mills come and go and their place taken by the tourists who patronize this part of Michigan in the summer time, and also the winter sports in the winter time.
Mr. HOESLI has always progressed with the modern ideas and he was among the first to purchase an automobile tank wagon to increase his efficiency in delivering his merchandise.
Today Mr. HOESLI has one of the best equipped trucks for handling gasoline, kerosene and fuel oil.
Dan will be succeeded by his son Earnest, who has been his assistant for the past few years and will give the same satisfactory service that his father has done over the past thirty years.
The friends of Dan wish him all of the good things in life, which he has earned through his courteous and faithful service. (10 Oct 1940)
