Tony recently heard a song that reminded him of Isaac Hines; it was a country song that talked about second chances. Isaac worked for Tony several years ago and abruptly left for a reason that was unknown to him at the time. Several years later, Isaac rode a bicycle to Retrofit to say hello and apologize for not giving Tony prior notice when he left. Isaac wasn’t working at the time and it got Tony thinking about the character of a man that rides a bike to apologize for something that had been long forgotten by himself. Tony then offered Isaac a second chance, and he will tell you it’s definitely been one of his smarter decisions.
Isaac is the kind of man that has more heart than ego. Isaac always makes Tony feel that it is an honor to work for Retrofit, when the reality is, Tony is honored to have him on his team. Isaac is a humble man with great integrity and despite all he’s been through in his life, he keeps a positive attitude. There is something to be said about a man that will happily do whatever job you have for him. His “whatever you need me to do” mindset is very refreshing. Isaac is living proof that we all deserve second chances in life.
