    I started with Lassen Auto Center in 2010 and have really enjoyed my stay here. We work with great people and have a great owner principle in Larry Lassen. Having been in the automobile business since 1979 I have seen and experienced most things and situations this business has to offer. All of the ups and downs, good times and bad times. This has helped me understand the importance of taking care of our customers, our business and our reputation and create a confident and comfortable place for our customers and their friends to come to time and time again. This business is ultimately all about the customer.
    I have a wonderful wife of 37 years, three children who are married and seven grandchildren. We love to spend time together especially when we can get all the children together. Boy what a blast and a house full.
    I am an avid outdoorsman. Love to snow and water ski, scuba dive, golf and just about anything outside, even yard work. We love to travel especially to any place with warm climates and a sandy beach.
    I would like to invite all of my customers and friends to stop by and say hi and contact me if there are any questions, concerns or automotive needs. I am here to help.
