Current Office Manager Leah Overson gives credit to the late Crystal Atkisson, the previous office manager who got the project moving forward in 2017. Atkisson died unexpectedly in March 2019, and Overson said, “I know she would love to have seen it through and be here today. I am thankful to finish what Crystal started.”

 

“This shop is dedicated to both Crystal Atkisson and Harry Hardin,” Overson said. “Because of Crystal, the project began, and because of Harry, the project was possible. We are so beyond grateful to see our doors open and the next chapter of business begin. Come by and say ‘hi’ and I’ll make you a cup of coffee.”

 

Norcal Autobody co-owner Kevin Brett said, “We would like to thank everyone who took part in this project and helped it come to life. It has been a lot of work and we could not have done it alone.”

 

Norcal Autobody was established in 2011 by Weekly and Brett, who have a combined 60 years of autobody experience. The business had been located at 687 K St. in Fortuna, the former location of Bob Aldrich’s Body Shop. When Aldrich retired in 2011, Weekly and Brett established their business at the same location.
