    We have known the Sturgeons since shortly (over 30 years) after they started Professional Car Care. Throughout the years, Claude has been a true gentleman & generous friend. So sorry he's physically not with us anymore. His spirit lives on. My family & staff misses him.

    From the very first day I met Mr Sturgeon I knew he was special. He was recommended by a friend of mine to repair my wrecked truck. Out of a repair job I got a friendship with Claude and Vernon Sturgeon. Mr Claude and I were both machinist. I loved hearing his stories from his days as a machinist in the oilfield. You could see the passion he had for making things out of a piece of steel into a usable part. I will surely miss him. My condolences to his family.
