A true American Dream success story, the Galvanek family had always liked the idea of creating an auto auction business close to home. In 1976, that dream became a reality and they opened Galvanek’s Auto – RVs & Auto Auction. Ed and Alice Galvanek founded the company, along with their two sons Dennis and Jack—the workhorses of the family. Alice was known as the glue that held the business together. Dennis had three sons: Edward, Christopher and Charles.
