Work Stories: Mechanic Sam Tabullo, Handing Down the Wrench

Apr 2, 2014

All this month during Arizona Edition’s Work Stories, we will hear stories from the automotive industry.  This week, mechanic, manager, and customer service agent Sam Tabullo talks about why, at the age of 17, he decided to go into the auto industry…(originally aired 04/02/14).

My father, in 1985, became a paraplegic and he was a mechanic off of his normal work duties. And it was very hard for us, if I remember correctly, but I bet it was more hard for him. I do not recall his ups and downs...but he decided to keep turning wrenches in a wheelchair.

This piece was featured in the April 2nd Arizona Edition.  Other pieces featured in the show, as well as other Work Stories in the mechanic series, can be found below in the related content section.
