Three best friends who have worked collectively for almost a century at Derecktor Shipyard in Dania Beach, Florida chatted with The Triton during their lunch break on March 9. Painters Guadalupe”Diego” Gonzalez, Angel Cruz and Cristobal Alvarez all said they love what they do. Gonzalez has worked at Derecktor for 30 years, Cruz is up to 36 years and Alvarez said he tried to retire at 19 years but just wasn’t ready to be away, so he came back and is at 21 years now.
