Employees learn they are father and son

Wisconsin business co-workers discover they are more than just friends on the job.

A friendship between two colleagues in Wisconsin turned into an unexpected family reunion after a man discovered his friend on the job was actually his biological father.

Nathan Angrily told WLAX-TV he was adopted at birth and never knew who his biological parents were.

“Growing up I always knew that I was adopted, but never thought I would ever find my parents,” he said Wednesday.

While Angry, did not know who were his parents, his adoptive parents and just happened to notice recently that Nathan was friends on Facebook with his biological father. Angry said that his adoptive mother pointed out that his biological father is a truck driver, just like him.

“They just went on my Facebook and went through my friends list and took his picture and I said, here,” Boos told WLAX.

That man was Bob Degaro, who has worked with Nathan on Rock Solid Transport in Chippewa Falls, Wis., for the past two years.


“It is still a kind of shock and there are days I don’t know exactly what to say or how to act,” Degaro said. “I mean, he is my son, but we don’t have the father son relationship growing up, and then we were work partners before we knew who we were.”

Degaro told WLAX the choice to give Nathan up for adoption was a difficult one caused by the financial stress, and that he has two children with his ex-wife

“Back then I wasn’t much of a father,” he said in the tv channel. “His biological mother had chosen for the adoptive parents, because they were somewhat related, distant cousins, I think, but I didn’t know that.”

The new father and son duo are now busy with the remodel of their new friendship, and Bob is planning to attend Nate’s upcoming wedding.
