After 38 years of service to Clark County REMC, Dave Barton, manager of operations and engineering, retired at the end of 2022.

Barton started his career with REMC as a groundman and then was given the opportunity to be an apprentice lineman in 1984. His drive to continue training and learning didn’t stop in 1989 when he became a lineman. He continued his education, which eventually earned him an associate degree from Purdue in electrical engineering technology.

In 2000, Barton became the operations supervisor, which led him to the role from which he is retiring, the manager of operations and engineering.

Dave plans to enjoy small trips with his wife, Vickie, spend time with kids and grandkids, finish projects around the house and catch up with old friends and retired REMC employees.

Looking back on the past 38 years, Dave stated, “Every position that I have had over the years has been the best. My career has been very rewarding. I have had the privilege to work with some amazing people that all want to do what is best for the members of REMC. I’m looking forward to the next chapter in my life and I have no worries that REMC will continue to do what is best for the members because that is what we always strive to do.”

REMC wants to wish Dave all the best in the future and thank him for all that he has done over the past 38 years.

After 34½ years, Jay Munk, staking/engineering technician, retired from Clark County REMC in December.

Jay started his career in 1988 as a meter reader and then was promoted to a staking engineer in 1998. He stated, “I’ve been very blessed to work
for such an amazing company over the years. My co-workers have become my extended family. It is going to be hard to leave REMC after being here each day over the past 30 years, but I am looking forward to having more time to relax, spending more time with family and friends and whatever else may come my way after retirement.”

We thank Jay for his hard work and dedication to the cooperative over the past 34½ years and wish him all the best in this next chapter of his life. Congratulations, Jay!
