Former Groesbeck couple returns home

By Roxanne McKnight
Staff Writer
A young couple who grew up in Groesbeck – Clayton and Kristin (Jones) Rettig – moved back to their hometown in February, and they have already settled in with new jobs and old friends.
Clayton Rettig bought the lawn service portion of Wilson’s Lawn and Tree Service from Devin Wilson, while Wilson is keeping the tree care portion of the business he founded. The two associates share the Wilson office on J.B. Riggs Drive behind the courthouse.
Kristin Rettig is a physician assistant at Rettig Family Health Care, helping her father-in-law, Dr. Jeff Rettig.
Both Clayton and Kristin said they have warm memories of growing up in Groesbeck and had planned to return to live in their hometown someday.
“My family moved here when I was in kindergarten, so I spent most of my growing-up years here and graduated from Groesbeck High School,” Kristin said.
