Waynedale’s own Kirk Gemple is happy to be back in the Waynedale area! Formerly of K-Lo Quality Autos on South Calhoun, Kirk is now GEMPLE MOTORS which is located 4 miles south of Waynedale on Hwy 1/Bluffton Road, at the corner of Yoder and Bluffton.
Kirk attended the original Waynedale Elementary School, Kekionga Junior High, and Elmhurst High School. He started in the automobile business 30 years ago at the age of 14, while he was attending Elmhurst High School. He was a detailer for Rice Olds that was located in the Quimby Village area. Kirk says, “I came back to the Waynedale area because I love it here! I still remember the good ol’ days sitting out on the Stark porch and playing.”
Busy helping Kirk in sales and ‘sprucing the place up’ are his three beautiful daughters, Jessica-17, Elaine-15, and Emily-15. They attend Homestead High School and are very active in soccer and basketball.
As a veteran in the car sales business Kirk knows what you need. He is specializing in one-owner cars, and as all of his former customers know, he buys QUALITY. Kirk would like his old customers and friends to stop by and say Hi. He promises them all a good quality deal.
