My wife thought up the slogan and her brother printed the caps for us. The guys at the APCO/Madison Svc Bldg bought enough so Bobby and Ronnie McMasters could have one for free. They were "Fat Boys Auto Repair".

Our little community has lost a great man. He was loved by so many and brought joy to anyone that was around him. He could laugh and make anyone around him laugh with his quick wit and his natural ability to lift the spirit in all of us. My sincere condolences to all of his family and friends. Rest in peace our friend...you remain in our hearts and memories forever.

Like the others I enjoyed his stories. He was the only person I knew that found humor in his own hemorrhoids. If you never heard that story you missed a classic. I told him I had trouble looking at red grapes at least six months after he told us in the Madison (APCO) Svc Bldg about them.

"Fat Boys Automotive" is out of business.
