In memory of Vernon VanEngelenhoven

Van's Garage was founded by Vernon VanEngelenhoven in 1975. As a Vietnam Veteran, he created a service business that established a reputation for honesty and skill. As he built the institution that bears his name, year by year, his customers and friends came to expect him to know the answers to their mechanical problems and fix them. Fix them he did. His efforts toward building his business spanned 35 years progressing from a one bay garage to the state of the art facility we enjoy today. Those years he spent serving his country in Vietnam exposed him to substances that manifested their presence 40 years later. In 2008 he was diagnosed with lung cancer. We lost him in June 2009.

Auto Repair

Today the dedication to honesty and professional service continues. Kenny McClure, Van's nephew (aka "mini-Van") now owns and operates Van's Garage and Towing. It was fortunate Van was able to groom Kenny for several years before he was taken from us. Customers can expect Van's enduring values and skills to be alive and well among the staff of today.
