Ray Ellis grew up right on the corner of 1900 W and 700 S where he started his own auto body repair business in 1964. Simply working in the backyard, he quickly gained a loyal following among Ogden drivers. His son, Gary, began helping out when he was only 8 years old, and grew up learning how to do quality collision repairs every day. In fact, when Gary tells people he has 40 years of auto body experience, people are surprised, but it’s the truth! In addition to his lifetime time of training, Gary honed his craft with professional training, earning PPG paint certification and I-CAR certification.
We’ve come a long way since 1964. Gary is now Ray’s partner, and Ray’s daughter, Jackie, has also joined the shop. Ten years ago, we expanded and added a building three times the size of the one we had been working in. We also moved the front of the shop to the main road for better access and visibility. While Ray’s Auto Body has grown, what stays the same is the quality of our work, dedication to our craft, and the exceptional service we provide to our customers.
