Ford Motor Company District Manager Robert Mitchell presented a plaque to Walt’s Live Oak Ford last week in celebration of their 25th year in business.

“It has been our honor to be a part of Suwannee County and the Live Oak community for the past 25 years and we look forward to the next 25 years,” Walt’s General Manager Bryan Blair commented.

The founder of Walt’s Live Oak Ford, Walt Bryan II, sadly passed away earlier this year. His wife, Liz Bryan, has taken up the reins along with their son, Walt Bryan III, and daughter Susie Bryan.

“This is one of the best groups of employees we have had in a long time. They are all doing an excellent job,” Liz Bryan added.

Walt’s is currently preparing to remodel the front end of the dealership and are looking forward to the next 25 years.
