Hey there I’m Sheldon Ward. I moved to Leduc with my folks in 1974, my father ran the old SAAN store here from 1974-1979. I started working for him at the store at the age of 8. Then when he established his own at home business “Approved Carpet Cleaning” I worked for him, helping to clean carpets. I was interested in mechanics as soon as I was able to hold a tool in my hand. My parents had to hide the screwdrivers to keep my from taking things apart. At 8 years old I used my money to buy a lawn mower engine, so I could take it apart and see how it works. It was at this time, I knew I was destined to be a mechanic. I continued to tinker with any engine I was able to.
I have now accumulated over 35 years mechanical experience. Through the example of my hard working parents, I have learned about the honesty and integrity it takes to run your own business. I hope to share these lessons with my own children right here in the same wonderful city that I grew up in.
