Faces of Goodwill

Gary's Story

Gary's Story

Meet Gary Ebbighausen

Gary came to Goodwill just before the Brattleboro store opened in December 2022.  He is described by the Regional Manager as someone who “is always looking for a solution on how to fix any situation that arises and to help team members in any way possible.”  With years of experience in construction and having served as a journeyman sprinkler, Gary admits that he can fix just about anything. He says “I’ve been a fixer all of my life.”

At home, Gary is the cook and enjoys cooking the fish he brings back from his annual Alaska trip.  He also gets joy from spoiling his grandchildren. When he comes home every afternoon, he is greeted by three dogs aged 1 year to 10 years awaiting their snacks.  And Gary enjoys fishing and hunting and watching the Patriots, Red Socks and Bruins games.

When asked about his work at Goodwill, Gary reports that he likes the people.  We appreciate the efforts Gary makes at keeping our Brattleboro store in tip top shape.
