Our name comes from my family history of harvesting timber from the Canadian woods. My grandfather helped his father peel pulpwood lumber as a teen. When my grandfather was old enough to drive, he got a job delivering stove wood from the mill to the railroad yard and loaded the box cars. He then bought his own truck and delivered wood from the mill to the railroad. In 1952, he joined the army and his career as a lumberjack came to an end.
My grandfather faced many difficult times in his younger years but kept working hard, fixing his "always broken" truck, and making a living for his family. He served in the army for 25 years spending many years away from home and family. I never heard my grandfather complain about difficult work or service. He spoke about his experiences as though they were a season of duty, a necessity to life. My grandfather taught me to persist though any challenge.
Our business is built on my grandfather’s values of integrity, hard work and loyalty. As a lumberjack, he learned to appreciate skilled craftsmanship and developed a deep respect for the world around him. At Lumberjack Plumbing, we honor him by following these important principles.
