Today, we want to showcase one of our long-term contractors who just recently became a full-time employee with 24/7 Networks, Larry “Pops” Fields.
We took a little bit of time to ask Pops some questions, get to know him a little better, and give the world the opportunity to see why Larry is a 24/7 Networks all-star. Pops is originally from Corvallis, Oregon, a smaller town located about 90 minutes from the Portland area. You may have heard of this city as it is the home of Oregon State University and (fun fact) was the state capital for 23 minutes in 1855 until it was swiftly switched to Salem.
One thing Larry has is a BIG family! 4 grown children, 15 grandchildren, and a GREAT grandchild. That is not the only family element to Pops, his idol is his Father, a man who lived life the right way.
In his down time he likes to golf, fish, garden, Saturday night movies, and says that “There is nothing I like more than a good glass of wine.” Make sure to keep in mind that bad drivers and loud noises are what will drive Larry INSANE. When asking Pops why he chose to work in the IT field, he said “By accident. Chose a communication field when I enlisted in the Military and have been doing this ever since.”
It must have been fate because Pops is an extreme asset to 24/7 Networks and the entire team would not be the same without him! Check Pops out in action with 24/7
