This company was formed out of the hard work, blood, sweat, and tears that my grandfather Robert Bowsher put into it. He worked for a man named Walt Stevenson for several years that had a hauling and excavating company and when that man retired that is when my grandfather decided to go out on his own in 1964. The man wrote an article and put it in the newspaper encouraging his customers and people to go to my grandfather for future hauling and excavating services that they might need. Now to spring forward quite a bit I, Josh Bowsher, am the grandson of Robert Bowsher and the son of Mark & Penny Bowsher. I spent my childhood riding in a backhoe and a dump truck. My grandfather taught me the value of a dollar and that hard work always pays off. He also taught me that you will get farther in life if you treat people fairly. I grew up helping my grandfather put in field tile, perimeter drains, septic systems, and digging with the backhoe. I also always enjoyed riding in the dump truck and going to Ward Stone Quarry. Although I have not been able to perfect tailgating stone yet I remind myself that grandpa had over 50 years to practice. The John Deere 440 dozer was not running when I was a child, but my father and uncle Tom told me many stories about it. Steve Klopfenstein bought it and fully restored it and it looks just as good as new. Steve was then gracious enough to sell it back to me last year so that I can proudly say that I now own all of the equipment that my grandfather had when he was working over the years. I took the company over as a hobby or side job and it continues to grow. I am happy to serve my neighbors and local people in the Buffalo, Monon, Francessville, and Monticello area knowing that I am carrying on a legacy that my grandfather started. Who knows, my son Levi may want to do this someday when he grows up just like his dad and great grandfather.
