Tim Miller of Owasso Auto Care always lived his life with a focus on both leadership and service. “The most successful people in life are ‘servant leaders,’” he says. “People who care about making sure the people around them are taken care of more than they care about just taking care of themselves.”
    But when he was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2013, he found himself reevaluating his priorities. “Something like this makes you realize how important people are,” he relates. “We get caught up in everyday life, but we should never forget to value people most highly. I’ve always had a strong inner desire to focus on people rather than profit margins, but this experience really brings it home.”
    Tim’s commitment to serving others through leadership began early in his life. He is a veteran of Special Forces with the United States Army, where he was a Green Beret. He has lived in Owasso for 38 years, and even when he was on active duty and had to travel a lot, he considered Owasso his home. When he retired from the service, he founded a construction service and worked within the Owasso and Tulsa communities for 22 years. “I bought Owasso Auto Care because I had a hard time finding a trustworthy, hometown repair center,” he says. “I wanted to create a comfortable place with a fair price.”
    Tim and his staff at Owasso Auto Care haven’t stopped at simply providing excellent and fairly priced auto service. In keeping with Tim’s philosophies, they go the extra mile for the community. Tim has a self-described “soft spot” for his fellow veterans in service and so gives a 10 percent discount to active or retired service men and women. He also believes in educating people about how to help themselves and offers a Safety Drivers Program which, although originally aimed toward the newer driver demographic (i.e. high school and college students), can be requested by any driver of any age. “This is offered free of charge to anyone who wants a better understanding of what’s going on with their car,” Tim says. Customers are encouraged to bring their own cars in, because each car has its own unique attributes, and technicians at Owasso Auto Care will help them understand not only important aspects of car maintenance – like lights, air pressure, oil pressure – but what specific problems are commonly encountered at certain mileage milestones in the their particular model of vehicle.
    This service is provided on a walk-in basis, as long as there is a service technician available. “We appreciate a client who asks questions,” Tim says. “We will help them take their tools out, show them out to change a tire – we’ll even work with them and let them practice on multiple occasions.”
    This is just one example of how Tim strives to be a viable part of his community in all that he does, and he shows no sign of stopping, even with his recent bout with cancer. He had tumor removal surgery in December, but he is spending his recovery time at Owasso Auto Care, making sure members of his community get trustworthy, affordable auto care. “My family and I live, play, and raise kids here in Owasso,” says Tim. “We believe in giving back to our community rather than just taking.”
