build, repair, invent, and modify. It
wasn't long before the few cars around
came to him for repairs and alteration.
He soon landed a big job as
Maintenance Supervisor for the town's
large Coal Mine. Shortly afterward, he
designed and built one of the first
Shovel Trucks for the Mine System.
My father was always helping my
grandfather in his numerous projects
and repairs. He and his brothers
opened their first garage when they
were very young and it quickly became
a successful business until WWII came.

stand against 2 empires and all three
returned to start successful business
in 3 different corners of America. After
working in several GM assembly
plants, My Father returned to body
work and eventually returned to what

own projects, as well as customer
