I was born in 1950, raised on a dairy farm and have lived in this area all of my life. I was 13 years old when I did my first overhaul on a 1953 Chevy pickup. I have always loved any type of mechanics. Started working as a mechanic in 1968 at a Buick garage. I’ve only had three real jobs in my life. In 1989, I bought my boss out and the rest is “Royal’s Truck & Diesel Repair.”
I was a bartender for over 6 years and managed a bar for 4 years and I was a cop for 2 years, which was my passion, and I went to college for 4 years to get my Criminal Justice Degree. I grew up in Weiser, Idaho where I took Auto Tech for 3 years in high school. I have been around mechanics and truck drivers my whole life considering that I am an only child and Royal just happens to be my dad. I have always looked up to my dad, he has been my rock through my life, and I can always depend on him. I have been married to the man of my dreams since 1997, we have 2 daughters who keep us on our toes all the time. When my dad opened his business I loved getting dirty and helping him all I could.
I was born in 1976 and when I got into high school, I knew I wanted to be a Diesel Mechanic. I worked for B&M Equipment in Nyssa, Oregon after high school from 1995 to August of 1997, and then I went to work for Royal at Royal’s Truck and Diesel Repair until November of 2006. I then went to work for a truck dealership as a diesel mechanic and came back to Royal’s Truck and Diesel Repair, Inc. in April of 2012. I am A/C Certified, Bus Certified; I have my forklift license, up to date diesel certifications, and my CDL. I have lived in Ontario my whole life. I have 2 daughters and my wife also works for Royal’s Truck and Diesel Repair, Inc. I like working for a small business, you get to have good relationships with customers and employees.
