Mechanic for life: Dean Shore carries hobby into retirement
Dean Shore did not let age stop him from his passion
Since retiring in 1993, Dean Shore decided to stay active by returning to the workforce.
“I started working at Farver’s True Value,” Shore said. “(I) worked inside as a salesmen, and looking at parts and all that. When (my boss) opened up the motor shop, I worked at the motor shop, as a small-engine mechanic. I’ve been a mechanic all of my life. I’ve worked on cars all of my life.”
Shore used to work in the military on planes, and said it just seemed natural to work on cars. When asked which is more difficult, cars or airplanes, he said, “They’re about the same.” He worked on cars until the day he was told he could not.
