General Truck Parts is sorry to say that we lost our founder, Bob Smith on August 28, 2009 at the young age of 73. A tireless worker who was passionate about his business, Bob was respected by customers, vendors, and employees alike. He was known as the “Yoda” of the truck parts industry. His guiding business philosophy was to treat customers like gold. In 2006, Bob was elected to the UIC Chicago Area Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame. Bob was a very generous man who contributed to many charities and organizations. Bob will be missed by all as he touched so many lives.
