Dave’s Auto Body
9270 Valley View Road
Macedonia, OH 44056
Monday – Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Dave’s Auto Body is under new ownership. Rob Stetka bought the auto body repair shop when Dave passed away suddenly last August. He was approached by Dave’s wife, Joyce to help out after Dave’s death. When someone else wanted to buy the shop and level it, that’s when Rob decided to buy it and run it in honor of Dave. “Everything remains the same” Rob stated, “and the only change is I put my name on the business card.”
Rob has an emotional attachment to the business. Rob worked for Dave for over 18 years. He stated “Dave was like a second father to me, he was my friend, my mentor, he taught me everything I know.”
Rob felt it was no coincidence the shop was being featured this month as Dave would have celebrated his 67th birthday on February 23rd. Rob talks about his business is busier than ever and contributes it to the fact he did the right thing and stated Dave is watching over him and blessing him.
Dave’s Auto Body shop does everything from rust work to collision to restoration. Rob stated he never turns people away. His wife, Sandy was quick to point out Rob goes above and beyond. He takes pride in his work and will never waiver from that work ethic Dave taught him.
Rob is overwhelmed by the kind acts and support throughout the community after taking ownership. Occasionally someone will just plow his drive and will not accept anything for it. Some residents just stop in to visit and talk.
We thank Rob for continuing to make Dave’s Auto Body his business home and we congratulate him on this Award and wish him continued success.
