Dan, tell us a bit about yourself, your family and your career in auto mechanics.
“I graduated from Indian Valley High School in 1981, and soon after, I married my wife – former Rhonda Criss who graduated from Newcomerstown High School. Since our marriage, I have lived in the village. Rhonda and I have two daughters and two grandchildren.
I grew up working on cars and have always had a love for auto mechanics. I worked for a sawmill after graduating from high school for a short time, but my passion was fast cars and driving them. I started my mechanical career with Tom Heller at Tower Auto, then worked for George Everhart for over 20 years. I joined Citgo from Craigo in 2003 and have been here ever since.
In our free time, Rhonda and I spend time with our children and their families, as well as traveling. Our favorite vacations are cruises. We have been everywhere and we were even looking forward to an already booked cruise when the pandemic hit. We look forward to the normalcy that awaits us once it is postponed for us, and cruises are once again a regular occurrence in our lives. I find the same excitement of driving fast cars as cruising the ocean. We also like the calm of a mountain vacation, so we are very versatile in our travels. Another hobby is drag racing, and we will soon be participating in this hobby again at Dragway 42 in West Salem.
