It is with heavy hearts that the automotive industry says goodbye to a dear friend and colleague, Roy Shannon.
Roy wore many hats over the years starting with the Woolco Auto Dept. in Saint John, NB. From there he became the Atlantic sales rep for Wagner Brakes in 1977. In the mid-80s Roy became the sales manager for Battery Electric Ltd. (later becoming McKerlie Millen). In 1993 Roy left to become regional manager of Cooper Automotive, which later became a part of Federal Mogul. Roy continued there in the regional manager role until 2005. He then became general manager of APM Ltd. for several years before going to work with ZPS.
Roy’s zest for life was unparalleled. Every day was a new adventure and he embraced each day with enthusiasm. His work life was always in the automotive aftermarket business where he made true and loyal, lifelong friends. His personal life was all about family, friends, community, and a life shared with Ruth on his slice of heaven on earth, his home on Pickett Lake.
