The University of the Aftermarket Foundation board of trustees is mourning the loss of its former chairman Tim Lee, who passed away on June 3 at the age of 68. The board has pledged that donations made in his memory will be used to advance industry education.
“Tim Lee had a tremendous impact on our industry. He was a terrific leader and was actively involved in every facet of the auto care industry,” said Bob Egan, MAAP, chairman, University of the Aftermarket Foundation. “Tim’s passion for the aftermarket was evident and he was generous with his time. One of his many leadership roles was serving as chairman of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation.
