These people have been instrumental to the success of Childs Automotive. Without them, we would not be the business we are today. Thank you both for all of your help and support!

Laura is Gary's wife and accountant. Her help and support has greatly helped Childs Automotive to grow into the successful business it is today. She also has her own "Personal Chef" business at  InPerfectThyme.comex.htm

Irving is a good friend of Gary's. Irving went to the shop every morning to help Gary in the beginning years in business and helped out a few times a month for years after.  His help, support and kind words of encouragement over the years was very appreciated. Irving passed away Nov 15th 2008. We will always remember his smile.
