City Council recognizes retiring carwash employee

CARSON, Calif. — Robert “Bobby” Villaseňor worked at Carson Car Wash for nearly 50 years.

CARSON, Calif. — The Carson City Council awarded a special certificate of recognition to longtime carwash employee, Robert “Bobby” Villaseňor following his retirement from the industry, according to the Compton Herald.

Villaseňor worked at the city’s iconic Carson Car Wash for nearly 50 years, stated the article, and he has detailed thousands of vehicles from all over southern California since 1966.

He retired on Dec. 30, 2015, and plans to now spend more time with his family, travel and relax, reported the article.

Throughout his many years at Carson Car Wash, continued the article, Villaseňor has become “beloved and highly respected by his co-workers, supervisors and thousands of carwash patrons.”

He immigrated to California from Jalisco, Mexico, and eventually settled in San Pedro, added the article.

Villaseňor said in the article that retiring was not easy because he would miss “all of it,” speaking affectionately about his peers, customers and work at the carwash.

His advice to younger people, noted the article, is “to behave and be the hardest worker wherever you work.”

People like Robert Villaseňor are worthy of our praise, respect, recognition and honor,” said Mayor Albert Robles, in the article. “I [want] to thank councilwoman Lula Davis-Holmes for bringing the idea to recognize Mr. Villaseňor. On behalf of the many thousands of lives that Mr. Villaseňor touched here in the city of Carson, may blessings continue to follow him in the days to come.”
