Brent Strohmeyer (son of Russ and Margie Strohmeyer) of Stayton, OR, died at the age of 20 years as a passenger in an auto accident on September 6, 2001. He was very active in the automotive hobby and loved attending car shows and cruise-ins in his Hugger Orange '69' Chevelle.
Brent enjoyed working on cars and continually strove to learn more and improve his automotive skills. He was a gifted artist who liked drawing cars and trucks. His work was featured on car show t-shirts and posters.
Brent believed that classic cars were to be restored, maintained and driven. Not to be neglected, crushed or left to rust away in a field.
We enjoy driving Brent's Hugger Orange '69 Chevelle (he and his dad built) and his V-8 S-10 pickup (he built.)
Funds for $2,000.00 in scholarships are raised yearly through sponsorship, donations, t-shirt sales and raffles at our Stro's Wednesday Nite Cruise - Ins at the Stayton A&W. Cruise-ins are the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month June thru September. (Currently on hold)
