About Us

TRK 2 WITH DAD
In 1978, Skip Tracer began delivering gravel to customers in Lane and Linn Counties. With his skillful talent and a lot of practice, he learned and was able to place the rock in places with precision and with the least amount of labor for the customer. Over the course of thirty years, he rocked many roads and driveways building many loyal customers and friends along the way.

 

In 1969, Skip and his wife Linda had their first son Dean. A year later came a daughter, Jaemie, and then a second son Brandon. Growing up, all the kids experienced the hard work ethics of their parents and the time commitment required for keeping things moving in the forward direction. The many hours spent in the dirt pile with all the Tonka construction equipment, and all the free time spent with their Dad working on his truck and learning the importance of leaving a job with a satisfied customer, the boys were destined to follow in their Fathers trade.

 

After high school and some college, Dean spent his time working on a farm, some local machine shops, and a local driveway grader before working full time for his parents. In 1990, when Dean came aboard full time, a second truck was purchased and he began his place in the company delivering gravel just like his Dad and learning and experiencing all that Skip had tried to impart in him growing up. Not only did Dean learn his Dad’s skill and drive to do the best job possible with the clients, he also learned the skill of listening to the customers desires and then creating a solution to meet their goals. Dean’s drive extended further than delivering gravel.

He took what he learned and applied it to the heavy construction field. With Skip’s knowledge and Dean’s ambition, they decided to branch out beyond trucking and purchased their first backhoe. From here, Dean put in septic tanks and drain fields, house sites, built roads and parking lots. Over the years, with the satisfaction of each customer of a job well done, Dean expanded the business to more technical projects maintaining that same level of quality and customer relations that he had previously established. The Company grew with the help of many friends and family. Most projects completed were private and came to the Company by word of mouth recommendations of previous customers.

 

In 2009, Brandon joined the family business after finishing college and experiencing work for many years outside the family business. The drive that Skip and Linda instilled in their children continues today. Today the company has built a superior crew of high quality competent leaders who exemplify the Company’s legacy. When you call, you will still be speaking to the family and we appreciate all the customers we’ve had the privilege of working with. On November 20th of 2014, God called Skip home after battling cancer. Despite our loss of his physical presence, he continues to live in us and through us in the workings we have every day.
