Thank you, Ray. We’re going to miss you. Good luck!

With a heavy yet proud heart, we say goodbye to Ray Dyerson today as he will be officially retiring after an unforgettable 21 years of service at Kurt’s Auto & Truck Center. Ray will be the first to retire from Kurt’s Auto & Truck Center.

Ray’s experience in the automotive industry began many years ago when he worked in an auto shop to pay his way through college. Ray earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree from St. Louis University and continued his education by becoming an ASE Certified Master Automobile Technician.

Ray has been training the next Service Writer Anthony for the past 4 months.

We wish Ray and his family the best of luck. Ray will have more time to work on his Feiro collection and train sets. He also plans on building more memories with his wife, sons, and grandson.

The Kurts ride out to Katy Trail in Missouri

20140922_151849-1_resized Chuck Kurt met Dan Zimmerman and his Riding Support group in Arizona earlier this year and took up riding recumbent trikes. So Chuck trained for several months and met up with the group in Council Bluffs, Iowa. He also wanted to share this experience with his son Randy Kurt and his younger brother Wayne Kurt, so they were invited to come along as well.

After 5 days of riding, Randy and Wayne met up with Chuck and the rest of the group in Arrow Rock, Missouri. From there, the whole group rode to Katy Trail and continued for 5 more days on the Katy Trail. They finally ended their journey in St. Charles, Missouri. Dan and his supporting group will continue to Key West, Florida.

Chuck Kurt had 9 days of riding and rode 419 miles, a remarkable feat. Randy and Wayne Kurt rode for 5 days and did 210 miles of riding. It was a great experience for all and it will definitely be a lasting memory.

It was truly amazing to see Dan and his supporting group work and complete this journey together. Please visit their website and donate and/or encourage them to keeping pedaling to Margaritaville.
