Meet the Owners

Donnie and Elaine Lysons are long time residents of the Central Alberta area. They moved from the Vermilion area back in 1996 to farm by Crestomere. Since then they have run a variety of commercial endevours and have served as volunteers for a few organizations in the area. Many local farmers will remember them as the local Environmental Farm Plan facilitators. The curling community knows them from the club or as a Junior curling Coach. Some folks know them from previous business dealings. They bought the shop from Dave and Corrine Boere in March of 2018. They recognized that the Boere’s had a built a successful business based on trust and good service for 18 years… they were looking for an opportunity that was built on exactly that backbone. They work to continue to offer that same level of service and have also helped the shop evolve to using more modern software and hardware tools which will enhance the staffs ability to service our clients. The staff are instructed to treat every vehicle like it’s their Mothers!

  • "What a great group! Jeanine got us in fast.... Rob handled the details... and Eldon did super work! We had a lot of work done for the price originally quoted. We've found a good company and we're going to pass the news around! Thanks to all!"

    Cam McTavish
  • "I had my daughter’s car in for a back to school inspection last week. They got the car in quickly and the vehicle was in excellent condition. I was always a fan of 2A Auto Service and I’m glad to see the new ownership of Lacombe Auto Service is continuing the legacy of honesty and integrity. We will definitely be back in a few years when the brake job will be needed. Thanks Lacombe Auto!"

    Nancy Foreman
  • "I recently booked my vehicle to have some problems fixed, and the price was out of my budget at the time. However the staff was so willing to help that they allowed me to take part in a payment plan which made it all feasible. Thanks for everything, this is the place to a vehicle repaired."

Our Team of Technicians

You will recognize the front end staff if you are a regular at our Shop. Donnie, one of our owners, is often found running the front desk or bouncing between the front desk and the back shop. You will also find Rod Plato. Rod came on board with 18 years in the business behind him including being a ticketed Journeyman Mechanic. His vehicle knowledge base is a welcome addition to our team. Daniel, our parts runner, manages our inventory and parts processing. He may be the person to give you a ride if you need one! Occasionally, our tire tech, Kayden or Co-Owner Elaine will help out on the service desk.
