Bob Phillips knows just about every street in Delray Beach. He should. He’s been working for the city longer than anyone else. Hired in 1971 as a lift station mechanic, he has worn several hats over the years – all in the Utilities Department. Aside from a very brief retirement in 2006, he has worked for the city for 47 years, most recently as a GIS analyst, identifying where streets intersect for use on city maps. He finds satisfaction working with the maps’ intricacies, their countless points, lines and grids. “It’s good work,” he said. “I can go home at night knowing I did 50, 100, 200 of those.” A Seattle native, he served in the U.S. Navy and then decided to stay in Florida for the weather. He and his wife Joyce have two children and two grandchildren. He toys with the idea of retiring again, though he doesn’t have any immediate plans to fill his free time, he says with a smile. “I’m sure my wife will come up with a good list.”
