Owner / Manager
Hi, I’m Diane, the owner and manager of Larson’s Service, and thought you might enjoy knowing a little bit about our shop.
Diane is ASE Certified (Automotive Service Excellence)
as both C1 Service Consultant & G1 Auto Maintenance & Light Repair. She graduated with AAM (Automotive Aftermarket Manager) and AMAM (Automotive Masters Aftermarket Manager) from Automotive Management Institute, along with her AAP (Automotive Aftermarket Professional) from Northwood University.
She’s been in the Automotive Business since 1990, when she joined her late husband John, to help run our neighborhood shop, which has been successfully established for over 35 yrs!
John was a very talented mechanic, and great guy:), who loved fixing cars. He worked his younger years in GM dealerships, until we started out on our own. Starting out with no money, a dream, ambition, we both worked very hard to build our business. We continued to learn, John went on to become a top-notch Technician, while Diane learned about cars and how to run the business. We had great days, hard days, tears & smiles:) and loved what we did!
In 2007 John got sick and passed away in 2008 at the age of 56, from complications while awaiting a Heart Transplant. Diane lost her business partner, a top technician, beloved husband and best friend…We all lost a great, great guy!
Loving what we had built and how we could take care of our clients, Diane continued to learn and hired an amazing team to continue our service. Running our shop modeled after a doctors or dentist office, we offer a maintenance program, where we see our clients vehicles twice a year for a head to toe check over. Our goal is to find any concerns, BEFORE they become a problem. We love what we do!!
Our TEAM rocks and look forward to taking care of YOU and your vehicles.
My name is Brandon I have been with Larson’s since March of 2013, I am a Toyota & ASE Certified technician. I started working at a Toyota dealership in 2004 while working at the dealership, I started at UTI (University Technical Institute) in 2007 and specialized in Toyota & vehicle Performance. I worked at Toyota dealerships from 2004-2012. In 2012 to 2013 I tried my hand at a Hyundai dealership. After years of working in dealerships, I found Larson’s to be a breath of fresh air, the mom and pop shop with a professional business model was just the right fit for me. Even when I’m not working, cars are one of my favorite past times but nothing compares to spending my time with my wife and 3 kids.
My name is Sean I have been with Larson’s since September 2015, I started out my career in the automotive field as a tire specialist from 2004-2007. In 2007 I started working at a machine shop because I also found an interest in that field as well, but ended up finding my passion for the automotive field to be greater. I started working at an independent shop during the week in 2013 and I also started working at a chain store as a tire specialist again during nights & weekends, until 2015 when I found Larson’s, where I was hired on as a technician apprentice and have been learning the in’s and out’s of what it takes to become a certified ASE Master Technician. I am staying up to date with classes and training in order to start acquiring my ASE Certifications soon. When I’m not working, I am a pretty big sports fanatic. I love watching and staying up to date on all my Boston teams and playing football and Basketball, I also enjoy spending time with friends and my daughter.
