William ‘Buddy’ Darmody, a jack of all trades Council Officer, has put down his tools for the last time, retiring after an exemplary 50 year career at Manningham.
Affectionately known as ‘Buddy’, William began his Council career in March 1969 as an eager 16 year-old with an intellectual disability.
Liz Clarke, Buddy’s sister and carer, said Buddy joined Manningham (then known as The City of Doncaster and Templestowe) after he left school.
‘Buddy has been there ever since, working as a road crew, trade assistant, maintaining the workshop and more recently washing and detailing Council fleet vehicles,’ she said.
‘He has never not wanted to go to work, even when he’s been unwell, which is a testament to the friendship and support he received from staff and the organisation.
‘It’s incredible what a positive work environment can have on an individual’s life.’
Manningham CEO Andrew Day acknowledged Buddy’s contribution to the community and said Buddy received the distinctive honour as the longest serving staff member Manningham has had.
‘Fifty years’ service is an incredible achievement,’ he said.
‘The one gift Buddy can absolutely walk away with is the one we all crave for, the love and respect of friends and colleagues.’
Buddy said while it was incredibly sad to leave, he felt it was the right time to retire and enjoy life.
‘I am grateful for the opportunities Manningham Council has given me over all these years,’ he said.
Buddy is the only employee in Manningham to have a section of a roadway named in his honour. Buddy’s Way, the road into Manningham’s Depot Office was named after Buddy when he celebrated 45 years of service.
