But Spiekermeier could not tell a sole, not even his spouse, Mary Ann, or their 3 grown kids, that they were just one of few finalists.  It wasn’t easy for him to keep his secret from them.

“When I first learned from Whitewood Transport’s safety director (Brad Wilson) I might be driving the Kenworth T680 that would deliver the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree, I was speechless, ”

Spiekermeier said. “If you would have told me at the start of my driving career in 1968 that I would one day be stepping up to the plate to deliver ‘The People’s Tree’ to the U.S. Capitol, I would never, ever have imagined it.”
