He built a career doing what he loved in the auto industry working at Huber Chevrolet, AutoZone, Baxter Audi, and Auto Parts Warehouse. Everyone he met was always greeted with his deep dimpled smile, kind words, and acts of service. His passion for cars led him to be the go-to car guy for his family and friends.
