Jun 27, 2011

Todd Gartshore, co-owner and vice president of marketing for Baer Brakes, died Sunday morning.

Gartshore co-founded Baer Brakes in 1994.

Previously, he had worked at companies including Quickor Engineering, HKS, CarTech and Vortech. He also served on SEMA’s Board of Directors and the MPMC Select Committee.

“Todd was known for his great sense of humor; he loved to make people smile and laugh.  And if you cried from laughing so hard, he was completely delighted!”  Baer posted on its website this morning.

Gartshore was a fixture at industry events, races and shows, including the Hotrod & Restoration Trade Show, and will be missed by his many industry friends.

Hotrod & Restoration sends its deepest condolences to the family and friends of Todd Gartshore, as well as the entire Baer Brakes family.
