What you accomplished here was paramount in so many ways. Although my stay here from 84-89 was short, I learned so much, but most of all, it was the tightest/closest place to pour effort into that I have found, to this day, and I appreciate the chance to just be a part of it. You should all be quite proud, as most of us that worked there at one time or another, are proud of you! Well Done! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Feb. 6, 2016 Name: Denise Turley E-mail Comments: Everyone, I stumbled across this site.

In my almost 28 yrs at the plant I worked in several departments on the "floor", ended up in the training department and finished up doing training and documentation for the SAP department. After retirement I did some consulting work teaching SAP. While I dearly miss the sense of community I had with the people and the fulfillment I had doing the work, I am grateful for the time I have now to travel and enjoy another kind of life. I've been blessed beyond measure! Thanks to everyone who put in the hard work of developing this forum. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: July 22, 2014 Name: Debra {Wise} Rawls E-mail Comments: Wanted to stop by and say hello to every0ne. seeing all the pictures brings back a lot of memories.

I visited Mesquite often in my few years with Lucent. I worked in California at the Titania division where I was the engineering manager. It was a great job working with the best of engineers and the Lucent family. Didn't last long as Tyco didn't seem to want a west coast R&D center. We made the best of difficult times and it was hard to watch the business fail in the hands of Tyco. I still look back at what was and what might have been. Thanks for the memories. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Sept. 10, 2008 Name: Tami Wayboer E-mail Comment: Worked at Lucent/Tyco 1998 to 2007.

I miss all of you. We had lots of fun. I often wondered if there was life out there outside of WE/ATT/Lucent/Tyco. There is!! I have tried many things since leaving (getting pushed out) on 10/11/01. I have worked in a computer parts web-order package house in Grand Saline,TX. I was a sub teacher for the Wills Point ISD in 2002-03. I worked in the Accounting Dept. at Randall Noe Auto Group in Terrell for 3.5 years. On 12/18/06 I started working at the Atlas Copco Drilling Solutions World Headquartes in Garland, Tx as a Buyer/ Planner. This is a great job! I work with several ex-Lucent friends, such as Gene Marsh, Cindy Seal, Kevin Benson, and Randy Swanner. Kelly Hass is here too. I did not know him from Lucent but he just joined us in the sourcing group. Other ex-Lucent employees working for Atlas Copco in the Allen facility are Bill Scott and Kathy Moore. Mike Lenington was in Garland up to about six weeks ago. He quit and went to a different company ! in the Dallas area. (Replaced by Kelly Hass) If anyone wished to, please email me. I would love to hear from anyone! Sad to say so many have gone on to be with our Lord and Savior. I just pray that all of you know Jesus and are prepared like I am! GOD bless all of you!! Will Jackson ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: June 20, 2007 Name: Sheron Johnson Email Comment: I worked for AT&T, Lucent, and Tyco 11 years from 1990 to 2001. Most of those years I worked 2nd shift in Board Mounted Power, I spent a lot of those years in the Stamping area. I really miss Lucent/Tyco I felt like we were family, I wish there was a way we could have a reuniuon, since most of us spent over 1/2 of our life there. I miss everyone. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: April 29, 2007 Name: (Joyce) Mary R. L.

I worked at the Dallas Works from 1971 to 2001. I am now doing photography part time, and enjoying retirement! Seeing all these pictures bring back lots of memories, mostly good ones. I have put together an email list of former WE/ATT/Lucent employees that may be accessed through my website. Just open the website, then click on the envelope. We now have over 200 names listed! If you would like to be added, let me know. Miss you guys!
