Kennard Kapstafer, 78
Job description: The Pediatric Associates of Spokane doctor has been a pediatrician since 1962.
“I cut my hours back to three days a week when I turned 70, and now I just work two days a week.”
Some of Kapstafer’s current patients are the children and grandchildren of the babies he saw in the 1960s.
“I had a young lady I took care of as a newborn, and now her children are 20 and 18. She came in not too long ago, crying and crying. She said, ‘Somebody told me you had died. When I found out you were still alive, I made an appointment to come in and see you.’ I said, ‘Honey, I’ll send you a notice when I pass on.’?”
Why He Still Works: “I enjoy what I’m doing, and I have awesome partners. There is nothing more fascinating than to watch children grow.”
Advantages: “Physically, you’re moving all the time. Mentally, there’s no equal. You have to keep up. There’s a lot of reading and research to stay current.”
Advice to older workers: “If you’re still doing a good job and people are comfortable with you, and you are physically and mentally OK but are just getting irritated with all the (workplace) stuff, you just can’t let yourself do that.”
Last laugh: “Not too long ago, I had this little 4-year-old boy who kept watching me, and finally he spurted out, ‘Boy, doctor, you are getting old.’ Mom came unglued and said, ‘You are not supposed to talk to people about their age.’
“I looked at the little guy and said, ‘I know, honey, I’m getting old, how old do you think I am?’ He put his hands on his hips and said, ‘Boy, you got to be 28.’?”
"Working to improve the well being of Spokane's young people for over 100 years"
