Letter: Fairview Auto will be missed

Published: Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013 3:04 p.m. CST

To the Editor,

We would like to use this forum to express our sorrow at the closing of Fairview Auto.

Over three decades we found it to be a model of business ability and integrity. The late Jim Duda and his family, especially Sue and Rory, and the accomplished mechanics there like Bob have been a source of trust in a business world filled with those who will do dishonest work and dare you to do something about it.

I’m sure there are literally hundreds of others who will join us in our praise for Fairview Auto and regret at the passing of such a fine example of the best of Downers Grove’s business establishments.

Jim and Sue Dohren, Downers Grove
