Lonnie Amburgey didn’t run his dealership from his desk. He was a regular in the shop and parts area and did whatever needed to be done. “When it came to the knowledge of farm machinery, and how to fix breakdowns, Lonnie was one of the very best,” David says. “That is why he had such a successful business.”
