About Our Team

Our Team




Tom and his wife, Sue, have owned Action Auto Repair since 1996.  Originally from a small town in Northern Illinois, his interest in cars started very young when he started taking them apart and putting them back together.  After graduating from High School, he took a job in California as an auto parts representative which eventually brought him to Arizona.He and Sue have 2 kids – a son, Zach, a self employed personal trainer, and a daughter, Dakoa, an accomplished dancer.Tom loves fishing and tries to do as much as possible.  A quiet, lakefront cabin in the woods is his perfect get away spot.  And if he can get there via his motorcycle, what could be better?
