Bob Vollmer, Indiana’s oldest state employee, retires at 102

INDIANAPOLIS – Bob Vollmer has stories. Lots of stories.

Tales about teaching himself to build a radio during the Great Depression, digging himself out of an avalanche in World War II and marrying the love of his life and having four kids.

He can regale with anecdotes about his five-decade career canvassing Indiana as a state surveyor, first with a measuring tape and pencil but more recently with pinpoint satellite-guided technology, meeting a mobster and preserving the state’s natural resources for future generations of Hoosiers.

But at age 102 and with 57 years on the job, Indiana’s oldest-ever state government employee is moving on to a new story: retirement.

On a brisk February afternoon, the kind where a white wisp of air gives your breath away, Vollmer surveyed his last property for the Department of Natural Resources. And the next day, Feb. 6, he worked his last day.
