Main Street icon hangs up the wrenches

DSC_0054COSHOCTON – Dave Lauvray has changed oil, replaced brakes and repaired just about anything else that needed fixing on vehicles of all types for 52 years. He is pictured here checking the tire pressure on one of the final vehicles he had on the rack on Wednesday, Dec. 30. He said there were lots of memorable moments, and he recalls the time when a truck fell off of the rack. Lauvray said, “I’ll miss the people – and the cars, I like to work on cars, but mostly I’ll miss the people, that’s what keeps you going.” He said he was going to enjoy just “doing nothing.” All of Lauvray’s friends know that he likes the game of golf – and he said that he did something this year that he had not done before, which was, “I shot my age this year.” That brought a few chuckles from some of the “gang” that comes in to talk with Lauvray. And of course, Lauvray added, “We’re not going to tell people how old I am. They will have to guess.”

About the Author ()

I live with my beautiful wife Nancy on a small farm just outside Coshocton. We have been married for thirty two years and have two grown children, Jessica and Jacob. Jessica is married to Aaron Mencer and they are employed with Coshocton City Schools. Jacob is a sophomore at Kent State University. I graduated from River View High School, have a Bachelor’s Degree from North Carolina Wesleyan University and am actively involved with the Roscoe United Methodist Church, serve on several local committees and am a member of the Coshocton Kiwanis Club, having served as Past-President. I love reading, especially military thrillers, the Civil War and history in general. My goal is to write a novel. My wife and I are also AdvoCare distributors and encourage anyone wanting to lose weight, gain energy and better health to explore AdvoCare at our website; www.fortunes4advocare.com. I love the media field, innovative technology and have worked in newspapers for over 30 years – in fact, my first job was delivering newspapers. The Beacon is a dream made possible by the support of this community and a great team. I hope to continue serving Coshocton County for many years.
