Bob Grabill has had a paint brush in his hand since he was about nine years old.
“Actually, when I was that young, I was doing all of the grunt work and clean up,” laughs Grabill, who has owned Grabill Painting & Drywall for the last 30 years.
Grabill’s father started the company in Fort Wayne almost 40 years ago and originally called it Grabill Interior/Exterior Decorating.
“My dad was a hard worker and very regimented,” recalls Grabill.
He says his early experience instilled in him a strong work ethic and a desire to run a successful business.
“I’ve done everything when it comes to painting,” says Grabill. “This business is my life and I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
