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.”
