In Remembrance: Robert "Bob" Barkhouse | 1930 - 2019
We were grieved to hear of the loss of long-time member Bob Barkhouse. Bob was a dedicated and hard-working man, who was dedicated to his students, family and friends. He was a war veteran, the author of an automotive repair textbook, a board member, a council member, and even a mayor at different times in his remarkable life. He brought competence and humility to his work with ASCCA and was ever persistent in his tireless work to bring about positive changes for our industry. We were truly lucky to have him and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
