Freedom and Time to Get Outdoors
Just to refresh your memory, an everyday player is someone who is hardworking, dedicated and answers the bell every day with a smile on their face and a willingness to help folks. They can be from any walk of life and are individuals who usually fly under the radar, but are depended upon to make our lives easier and better.
Tip of the cap to Tom Barnes who is currently the general manager of Steve Shannon Tire and Automotive in Southside. Tom has been in the automotive industry for over 30 years and has worked in almost every aspect of the business. He has had the Southside store as his responsibility since it opened a few years back.
Tom has always had a passion for the auto industry and helping people. He definitely follows the verbiage, “the customer is always right”. He goes above and beyond to make sure his customers are taken care of in a timely and price effective manner. He has developed a friendship and trust with almost everybody who crosses his path, he truly enjoys helping people.
Tom has a passion for wrestling, as do his sons. He coached for many years in Hughesville. He served as president of the Hughesville Wrestling Booster Club for years. He devoted much time to coaching youth football, where he dedicated his time in both Williamsport and Hughesville. I know from coaching against, him his teams were always well prepared and taught the fundamentals of the game. Tom also enjoyed slow pitch softball for years.
Tom and his wife Christine live in Hughesville and together have five children and four grandchildren.
"I love our area and the people. I have always approached whatever I'm doing to help others and enjoy doing the best job I can," Tom noted.
Thanks Tom and keep up the great work.
