The man of the hour was Farrell Graham, who was honored at Pinnacle Propane, 1197 Hwy 65 North in Greenbrier for his forty years of service in the propane industry. Executives of the propane gas industry who gathered to help celebrate him included Sharon Coates, Director of the State LP Gas Board who has known him for 40 years; Jim Burcham, District Manager and Bob Warga, Branch Manager of the Greenbrier office and former owners of the business, Lance and Jimmy Reynolds. Many friends and neighbors were also gathered.

Graham was born in Greenbrier, went to school here and has worked in Faulkner County and surrounding areas all his life. You heard comments in the room like "Farrell knows everybody in the country and has never met a stranger". "He’s my Go-to Service man and can do anything." "If FG can’t fix it, it can’t be fixed and you need a new one!"

There was only praise for this man who worked with the Reynolds brothers and helped them build the business from the ground up from zero customers to a thriving company covering 12 counties in central Arkansas. Pinnacle Propane/JPEnergy out of Irving, TX acquired Reynolds Brother’s in May of 2012. He was presented with a plaque to commemorate his forty years as they cut a beautiful cake in the shape of a propane tank and served punch.

Tari Linn, Customer Service Rep at Pinnacle Propane said, "Farrell is not only the best worker; but the best friend you could ever possibly have!" Director Coates said, "What a good guy in propane! It’s a pleasure to have someone like him and I hope he stays another forty years." See more photos at
