Two Retire from VA
Medical Center In
Iron Mountain
IRON MOUNTAIN — The Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center in Iron Mountain recently celebrated the retirement of two employees with almost 60 years of combined service at the facility.
Brad Tomassucci retired June 29 as laboratory manager after a career at the medical center that spanned three decades.
Karla LaDuron of Iron Mountain stepped away May 25 after 28 years of federal work, most recently in administration for the chief of med- icine.
Born and raised in Iron River, Tomassucci graduated from West Iron County High School in 1980 and from Michigan Technological University in 1984 with a bache- lor’s degree in medical technology.
Tomassucci spent his entire VA career in Iron Mountain, dating back to June 8, 1988. He worked in the lab, beginning as a bench tech- nologist in the chemistry section. In 1995, he became team leader over- seeing the chemistry, urinalysis and specimen processing departments of the laboratory. In 2002, Tomassucci was promoted to labo- ratory manager and remained in that position until his retirement. Tomassucci and his wife, Tammy, have two sons and a daughter.
LaDuron was born and raised in Kingsford and Iron Mountain, graduating from Iron Mountain High School. She formerly was employed at Michigan Bell Telephone Company/AT&T for 18 years before coming to the Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center on Dec. 17, 1990. She worked in sev- eral services during her tenure, retir- ing from administration for the chief of medicine.
LaDuron just marked 44 years of marriage to Ron LaDuron. They have two daughters and six grand- children.
