How To Write Thank You Letter For Dad’S Retirement

Thank You Letter For Dad’S Retirement Sample 1

Hey Dad,

I just wanted to take a moment to congratulate you on your retirement. It’s a pretty big deal. It’s like graduating, but with perks like not having to set an alarm anymore and eating lunch whenever you want.

But seriously, Dad, I am so proud of you. You have worked so hard throughout your career and never once complained when you had to bring work home. I mean, you even brought work on vacation. Who does that? You do, Dad. You do.

But all jokes aside, Dad, you have taught me so much about dedication and hard work. Watching how you approached your career has inspired me to strive for the same excellence in my own work. You always led by example and never expected anything from anyone that you wouldn’t do yourself.

It’s hard to believe that you won’t be getting up early every morning, putting on a suit and tie, and heading to the office. But you’ve earned this time to relax and enjoy the fruits of your labor. And I know that you’ll make the most of it.

Dad, I just wanted to let you know how much I love and appreciate you. Thank you for all that you’ve done for me, our family, and your career. You are truly a role model and an inspiration to us all.

Enjoy your retirement, and don’t forget to call me when you’re bored. Love you, Dad!

Thank You Letter For Dad’S Retirement Sample 2

Dear Dad,

First of all, congratulations on retiring! I have to say, I’m a little bit jealous. I’m not sure what I’m more envious of – all the free time you’re about to have, or the fact that you won’t have to deal with post-lunch conference calls anymore.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for being such a wonderful dad all these years. I mean, sure, there were times when I was a teenager and I thought you were the lamest person on the planet. But now that I’m older and wiser, I realize that you’re actually just a little bit less cool than you think you are. And I love you for it.

You’ve always been there for me, whether it was teaching me how to ride a bike or helping me move into my first apartment. And I know that you’ll continue to be there for me even though you’re retired now. You’ll probably even have more time to annoy me with your dad jokes and your insistence on wearing socks with sandals.

But in all seriousness, I’m so grateful for everything you’ve done for me. You’ve been an amazing role model, and I’m lucky to have you as my dad.

So, here’s to you, Dad! Enjoy your retirement, and don’t forget to send me pictures of all the cool places you’re going to visit, and all the exciting hobbies you’re going to take up. And if you get bored, feel free to come over and clean out my garage.


Your favorite child. (Just kidding. But seriously, it’s me.)
