12/09/2016 ~ On December 30, 2016, Keys Energy Services’ (KEYS) Robert Barrios, will retire after 28-years of continuous service to the Utility.

Barrios was originally hired in 1988 when the Utility was named City Electric System. During his tenure he held the positions of Auxiliary Operator, Meter Reader, Customer Programs Representative, Buyer/Inventory Analyst, and Engineering Field Representative prior to completing his career as the Safety & Risk Officer within the Human Resources & Communications department.

When asked about his most memorable experience at KEYS Barrios said he, “really enjoyed the problem solving aspect of his jobs, especially while working in the Engineering department designing jobs that helped make a difference in our community.” In discussing the secret to his longevity he attributed it to, “waking up every morning and coming into work because there was a job that needed to get done.” He added that he was, “the type of person that did not call in sick if he was not and was thankful for the benefits he received and did not take them for granted.” In reminiscing about his time at KEYS Barrios said he will miss the day-to-day interactions with co-workers and customers.

Barrios and his wife of 22-years, Tanya, raised their daughter Taylor in Key West. In retirement Barrios plans to travel and dedicate more time to exercising. After a 28-year career at KEYS, he has earned the right to set his own schedule in the years ahead.
