I was born in Paulding, but later moved to Grover Hill to attend Wayne Trace High School. Growing up I would spend time with my Great Grandfather who owned his own automotive repair shop proudly named “Ernie’s Auto Service” located between Van Wert and Paulding in a little town named Broughton. Whether I was sweeping the shop, running a lemonade stand for his customers, or just watching him work all day are some of my fondest memories.
