 Page 608 - Clarence A. Gauthier, assistant manager of Peiter Auto Company at 233 Washington street, is another representative young man of the community who is rapidly forging ahead to a position of importance in business circles. He was born in Toledo, Ohio, on May 12, 1889, and after finishing his education in the public schools and graduating from the high school in Toledo, spent two years in St. Johnís College of Toledo. He then began his business career in the automobile business in an atmosphere where he could secure a sound foundation, when he entered the employment of the Willys-Overland Company of Toledo. He so advanced with his work with that company that he traveled for seven years as a district sales representative. Leaving the work upon the road he came in 1919 to Grand Rapids and associated himself with Mr. Peiter, first handling the Overland line with which he has so thoroughly familiarized himself. Applying his general experience in the automobile sales work he has since handled the Durant, Star and Flint cars and in these ventures has met with a similar success. In religious affiliation Mr. Gauthier is a member of the Catholic church, and fraternally affiliated with the Knights of Columbus. He was married on June 14, 1915, to Miss Mame Scalise, of Warren, Pennsylvania. Their children are: Robert, Beatrice, Barbara, Margaret and Richard.
