In Loving Memory Of Shy Johnson

*** 1992-2022 ***

Shy Johnson was our Service Advisor here at United Auto Sales and if you've ever met her, you'd definitely remember her wonderful outgoing personality.

Her spunky behavior and infectious smile never failed to light up a room. Shy, you will be sorely missed by all of us. Rest easy our friend.
