“This business and helping those in need has always been my dream. Owning and operating something that you have worked so hard to see grow has been amazing. It was never my plan to have my entire family here but both of my boys have decided to work here and plan on running it themselves one day. That is my greatest accomplishment. Having something I could pass down to them.”
Just when you thought Kathy couldn’t possibly have more to offer, she shares that she also excels in cooking, sewing, embroidery, singing and just about everything under the sun. She even recorded an album in Nashville; Super Mom! Bob won her heart on a date, back in the day, when the score of a street race read 1 to 1 (best out of 3) and he “put his girlfriend behind the wheel” for the final round. She settled the score as the sore loser brandished his taillights off the strip in a blaze of shame; that’s probably around the same time Kathy won Bob’s heart too.
About 10 years into working at Harvestowne Auto Body, Rob married his lovely wife Kayla on 9-10-11 (because who could forget that date?). They’ve started their family with a pitbull/shar-pei named Bruce, with whom they adore camping with as often as possible in their new RV, “Large Marge.” When hailstorms roll in, “long hours” is an understatement. “Dad and I live at the shop.” But that doesn’t bother him… “My greatest accomplishment is that I’m a very happy person and am extremely blessed to have a family both at home and in the shop that I love very much.”
The relaxed atmosphere and desire to deliver quality service to their long-standing customers is all Brad needs to feel at home at Harvestowne. Coming from St. Genevieve Missouri, Brad has his fantastic family to spend his free time with: wife - Linda, and his for kids Leann, Wayne, Shelby and Logan. How else to best enjoy free time with them than “chillin’ & grillin” and spending time on the road travelling. His greatest accomplishments are… You guessed it; his wife, kids and grand kids. We think the Harvestowne family business is a suitable second home for a guy like Brad.
Much like he was born and raised in St. Chuck, his greatest accomplishment in life thus far is following suit and raising his children while teaching them along the way.
A great memory - A ways back there was a body man that used to work at Harvestowne… Something caught fire when he was welding. Instead of yelling “Fire!” he yelled, “Water, water!”
A word to the wise from Patrick: “Yell ‘FIRE!’ if something’s on fire… especially in a body shop!”
Nothing beats a customer with tears in their eyes, unexpectedly being treated so kindly and over delivering the quality of service, for Jeremy. In fact, that very sequence of events marks his favorite memory at Harvestowne; “They even hugged me!”
Oliver is a part of the Lewis & Clark program which provides students with the opportunity to explore their career interests while acquiring meaningful and supportive technical education. We are proud to have him on board!
When not doing awesome work for us down at the shop, you can find him hunting, fishing, or working around his house and farm. His goal is to one day have a big, happy family that won’t have to worry about anything. “And, of course, winning the lottery would be cool too.”
