Steve Helis, Technical Division electronics technician, will retire after working at Fermilab for 32 years. His last day is Friday, Jan. 24.
As a member of the Test and Instrumentation Department, Helis designed, constructed, tested and repaired various electronics used to test magnets and radio-frequency acceleration cavities.
Helis looks forward to family time after retiring, traveling and spending time with his wife, children and grandchildren. He also plans to dedicate time to his passions — gardening, making model trains, and building World War II ships and armor.
A coffee-and-cake reception will be held for Helis tomorrow from 2-3 p.m. on the main floor of the Industrial Center Building.
