Sherold Salmon - Owner
Raymond Sherold Salmon came from very humble beginnings. His father worked at the Lindale Mill and his mother was a housewife. Sherold began working for the Rome News Tribune on a bicycle route when he was 10 years old. Sherold, always a hard worker, was eager to build his route into a newspaper agency. He started with 285 daily papers and ended with 4200 papers and 17 boys working under him. That was his only means of making a living until he began to sell automobiles out of his front yard in 1955. He opened Sherold salmon Motor Co. in 1962, and later Sherold Salmon Auto SuperStore in 1997. He was married to former Bonijean Lovett in 1959. They have three children, Regina Salmon Justice, Raymond (Ramey) Sherold Salmon, JR., and David Lovett Salmon. The two boys work in the business. Sherold has always tried to be honest and fair with his customers. He and his family are Christians and they try to live their lives in a caring, giving, and considerate way. He has built his business on trust and doing what he says he will do.
