COLUMBIANA, Ohio (WYTV) – A Columbiana car dealership honored a longtime employee on Monday.
When Bob Crook started working at Columbiana Ford in 1953, Dwight Eisenhower was in the White House.
The dealership recognized Crook’s 63 years of service with the unveiling of a plaque.
His fellow employees have described him as humble, hardworking, loyal, a gentleman and someone who will go out of his way to help others.
Crook jokes that he has no plans to leave.
“They’ll probably find me laying in a place back there on the floor. They’ll just call the ambulance and take me to the funeral home, they won’t even take me to the hospital.”
Now working in his seventh decade at Columbiana Ford, Crook has held various positions, including mechanic, parts manager and service writer.
