Death of a Honda dealer

Post by suvcw04 »



Dean Schlitter, who ran the Honda Powersports dealership in Oelwein, Iowa, died last week. I bought my 2005 Goldwing trike from him and had some service work done there. Dean ran a dealership, NOT a stealership. He was a gentleman, and easy to deal with.
He will be missed.
No word yet on the fate of the business.

Sad to hear. Are there family members to keep it going?

PS. FWIW I just bought a one owner '76 Wing originally purchased at Garvis Honda in Des Moines.
I'm not so sure about an inner child, but I have an inner idiot that surfaces every now and then.. :mrgreen:

He has a wife and daughter. I know his wife was at the shop most of the time.
