Steve Gilboy Obituary, Death – It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Steve Gilboy, co-founder, and driving force behind APM (Automotive Parts Manufacturing), on the morning of September 3, 2023. Steve’s untimely departure leaves a void that will be felt deeply by all of us at APM, our customers, suppliers, and everyone who had the privilege of knowing him.
Steve, along with his devoted wife, Marie, laid the foundation of APM in July 1991. From the humble beginnings of a one-bay workshop, Steve’s visionary leadership and unwavering dedication propelled APM to the thriving business it is today. His legacy is etched in the very fabric of our company.
Throughout his illustrious journey, Steve’s unwavering commitment to delivering first-class customer service remained at the heart of APM’s mission. His passion for excellence and the utmost dedication to satisfying our customers’ needs served as an inspiration to us all. Steve instilled in the entire management team the importance of maintaining the high standards he held dear.
Steve’s impact on APM extended far beyond the workplace. He was a mentor, a friend, and a leader who led by example. His presence was a constant source of motivation for everyone he encountered. He will be deeply missed, not only for his professional acumen but also for the warmth and kindness he extended to those around him.
In honor of Steve’s memory, APM will play an active role in his funeral later this month, ensuring that he receives the dignified send-off he deserves. We will come together as a family to bid farewell to a man whose contributions have left an indelible mark on our lives and our company.
As we mourn the loss of Steve, we are committed to continuing his legacy. APM will forge ahead with determination, striving to uphold the exceptional standards he set. Our promise to our customers remains steadfast – to provide a level of service that would make Steve proud.
Rest easy, Mr. G. Your legacy lives on in the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing you, and your spirit will forever guide us in our pursuit of excellence. Thank you for the inspiration, the wisdom, and the unwavering dedication you shared with us throughout the years. You will be dearly missed but never forgotten.
