His sixth grandchild was born a few weeks ago, and Michael Langdon has decided it's time to retire.
For eight years Dr Langdon has been chief executive of Access Australia Group, an employment support service for people with disabilities.
The organisation has nearly doubled in size, developed PepperGreen Farm significantly and become financially sustainable, in that time.
Dr Langdon began his working life 40 years ago as a school teacher at St Liborius Primary School in Eaglehawk, then as school principal.
He went from the school to TAFE, to a job with the Australian Technical College.
A period with the then Department of Sustainability and Environment followed.
It was the mission-focus of Access' work that attracted him to the role.
"What really appeals to me about Access is that it's mission-based and has some really good, terrific outcomes, for people who are living with a disability," Dr Langdon said.
"Having a job helps create a purpose in life, a reason to get up out of bed, it helps provide some money, it also is a social aspect of work, where people can meet other people, and get out of the house and be involved in the community."
Education is one of Dr Langdon's passions. He believes it's what allows a person to become the best that they can be.
And for people with a disability, it's part of what can help them achieve their aspirations in life.
Seeing the result of this is one of the rewards of working for Access.
"That has been one of the highlights, to see what difference an organisation like this can make in the life of a person," Dr Langdon said.
Dr Langdon retires on April 30.
