Little Leaguer’s dad keeps on trucking
Whatever happened to Myron Enos Sr. who left his job as a cement truck driver to watch his only son play in the Little League World Series games held on the mainland?
Answer: A few weeks after he returned from Pennsylvania to watch his son, Myron Jr., and his Ewa Beach teammates win the World Series, Enos was offered a job at Kamalii Trucking.
"Everything fell in place perfectly," Enos said.
Enos quit his $60,000 job as a concrete-mixer truck driver at Island Ready-Mix Concrete Inc. when he was not granted unpaid leave to watch his son play in the World Series. He took out a loan before he and his family left for the mainland.
More than 10 job offers rolled in from people who heard about his decision to quit his job. But the offers either didn't pay enough or did not fit his lifestyle, Enos said.
His friend, Derick Komoda, who works at Kamalii Trucking, called him to let him about a job opening. Enos trained to operate a backhoe and to drive various types of trucks, including water and dump trucks. He was soon hired and has been working at Kamalii for the past month and a half.
Enos is working at the Ocean Pointe development project in Ewa Beach.
He said he is satisfied with his job. The project site is no more than 10 minutes from his home and offers the same annual pay as his former job. He also has weekends off, enabling him to watch his son play football and baseball.
"I cannot ask for anything more," Enos said.
