According to Livingston Daily, Daniel Lybrink pumped his arms and hammed it up for an adoring crowd Monday as family, friends, co-workers and others crammed into the Brighton McDonald’s to wish him well.

After 33 years, the 62 year old Howell resident is retiring from the restaurant, located at 8515 N. Grand River.

Lybrink, who has Down Syndrome, began working at the restaurant in 1984.  Today, his brother Harry Lybrink said he’s grateful McDonald’s helped his younger brother find purpose for so many years.

On Monday afternoon, well-wishers came to eat cake and cookies, sign a memory book and watch him open gifts, including a new bowling ball and bag.
