Fred came to work at Wertz Garage in 1954 at the age of 18. At that time he was working for Sam Warner. A year late he married Mr. Warner's daughter Doris on November 5, 1955. When Mr. Warner fell ill in March 1966, Fred took charge of the business. Fred and his father Hiram Dickmyer purchased the business from Mrs. Warner in September 1967 and they were business partners from 1967 to 1995. Fred & Doris along with their sons Kevin & Bradley now own and operate a Wertz Farm & Power Equipment.
Kevin grew up in the shadows of his father and older brothers in the shop and starting working on equipment as a teenager. He continued working in the summers during college and earned a bachelors degree in Agribusiness in 1989 from Delaware Valley College at which time he took a full time roll in the family business. Kevin has worked in all aspects of the business but has put his main focus on growing the lawn & garden business.
