Jim Gambill, aka "Mouse"
Many of you know Jim from BF Goodrich and Gambill's Garage and Wrecker, which he owned an operated for 7 years. After selling his business Jim joined Payton's Auto for two years and then returned, from Sam Grubb Discount Motor, twelve years later in 2008. He shared his wisdom and humor with us over the next three years, and it is with great condolences that I share with you Jim's passing on June 17, 2011. His reliability and friendship will be missed by all.
After taking two years of auto mechanics at our local Vo-Tech Ryan's career took off. He worked as a welder with Doug Lee for six years, moving on to Preferred Collision Repair where he worked for eight years as an Auto Body Tech. He then joined the Payton's team in December of 2009 and remains a strong dedicated part of our team today.
Ronnie has been doing automotive work off and on throughout his life between jobs. In late 2009 he worked part time with us and in February 2010 he joined our team and made it his full time career. Outside of work you will find him one of two places, with his children or on his Harley.
