May 10, 2017
A McDonald’s employee with Down Syndrome celebrated his retirement on Monday after 33 years of dedicated service.
Daniel Lybrink of Howell, Michigan, began working at McDonald’s in April of 1984 as the “lobby manager”. With over three decades of service under his belt, Daniel became known for his work ethic and contagious smile.
A surprise party celebrating Daniel’s retirement was held at the Brighton McDonald’s Monday, filling the lobby with his friends, family, and community members who have all been impacted by Daniel’s lovable personality.
The event included cake, gifts, and a memory book for guests to sign.
David Glynn, General Manager at the Brighton McDonald’s, has worked with Daniel for 13 years. Above all else, he says Daniel “makes everybody feel special.”
Daniel says his fellow employees are his “other family” and that he felt pride seeing how many people showed up to his party to celebrate him.
