What an honor to be part of the 2024 Hall of Fame Class!

Thank you WyoTech- Laramie !

WyoTech would like to introduce our 2024 Hall of Fame Class!

Rick Crook-

Rick Crook was born and raised in the rural community of Afton, Wyoming. His love for cars and restorations grew as a young man in Junior High and High school, spending countless hours and weekends with friends scouring the adjacent communities in search of old hot rods or hidden gems to make into project cars. He spent his senior year of high school in a Career Resource Training class at a local body shop in Afton. The shop owner quickly recognized his ability in welding and eye for painting and hired him full time after his graduation in May of 1993, kick-starting his career in autobody repair.

Rick aspired to attend WyoTech after graduation to learn more about his passion for hot rods and restorations. However, starting life out with a young family did not allow him the opportunity to attend WyoTech early in his career. He continued his work in autobody as a combo tech and painter. In 1996, a position opened at Aviat Aircraft in Afton as an aircraft painter, and Rick jumped on the opportunity. He worked painting custom airplanes with Aviat until 1998, when a sudden change in life pushed him to leave Afton and start a career in Oil and Gas Exploration. He worked for the next eighteen years as a seismic heli-portable driller and crew supervisor all over the US. However, he never lost sight of his dream of one day owning a collision repair shop or a restoration shop.

In 2007, Rick and his wife Leah relocated to Kalispell, Montana, to manage a Seismic Acquisition company. He continued traveling all over the U.S., spending time overseas in Africa and Iraq managing equipment and personnel on Seismic Projects. During this time, he continued to work on old cars/trucks, even acquiring a few project cars to restore along the way.

In 2015 and 2016, there was a decline in the energy exploration industry. This downturn allowed Rick the opportunity to pursue his dream in the autobody industry. In April of 2016, he started his next adventure of moving to Laramie, Wyoming, to attend WyoTech and educate himself in the new technology of autobody repair and painting, in order to re-enter the collision world and pursue his dream of owning his own shop. Rick graduated from WyoTech in December of 2016 with a diploma in Collision/Refinishing with Upholstery. He stayed to attend the Applied Service Management specialty program after completing his original 9 months, as he knew this would help him achieve his end goal. Rick graduated a second time from WyoTech in April of 2017, earning his Associate Degree in Applied Service Management in Collision and Refinishing. Rick was honored as an Eagle Tech, Team Leader, and Honor Student with a 4.0GPA. He had perfect attendance and received the outstanding student award for both Collision/Refinishing with Upholstery, and ASM. He also was a guest speaker at his second graduation in April of 2017.

After graduating from WyoTech, Rick returned to Kalispell, Montana, working in a large collision shop for the next four years. As luck would have it, another local shop owner was getting ready to retire from the autobody industry and sell the business. Rick was given the opportunity to take over said business and, on December 21st, 2020, Glacier Collision Worx, Inc. became a reality, and on April 1st, 2021, Rick opened the doors to his own business for the first time. Three years later, Glacier Collision Worx has grown into a successful collision shop in the Flathead Valley. GCW has been nominated Best of the Valley in 2nd place for 2022 and 2023. Rick and Leah take great pride in being able to support their local community and give their employees a family environment to work in. The satisfaction of putting GCW customers back on the road safely, with their vehicles restored to pre-accident conditions after a collision, is the most rewarding part of the job.

When we asked Rick what advice he would give to someone who was just starting his or her journey in the trades, here’s what he had to say-

"I would tell anyone trying to forge their own path to take the leap and do it. It took me a long time to make this dream come true, but I never gave up; and it made me who I am today. Pursue your dreams fully, have faith and surround yourself with people who support you and lift you up along the way. Never settle for anything less than your dreams."

Join us in welcoming Rick to the WyoTech Hall of Fame! Glacier Collision Worx, Inc.

We are so honored to have been given the opportunity to make this dream a reality for Tanner and his family.

It was a project that took many hands, after hours, weekend’s and the wonderful generosity of our community that helped support this dream .

I recall when the truck first came into our shop knowing the outline of Tanners wishes and the scope of what needed to be done, watching the many phases of repair happen and when the time came for the paint to be sprayed that is when it really came to life that this was going to be his vision !!!!

It was exciting and emotional, I am so proud of Rick Crook and our entire team at Glacier Collision Worx, Inc. for their dedication to giving Tanner his wish. Seeing how excited he was when the truck was revealed, the infectious smile he had and awesome hugs of appreciation from him and his family there are no words to express what that felt like.

I’m so happy we can share this story for a very deserving and driven young man and that we shared a part In making something very special.

📣A BIG Shoutout to the other sponsors that made Tanner's dream a reality!

I was very pleased with this place. Not only did they do a good job on what I brought my car in for but they also cleaned my interior and exterior and replaced my license plate holder that I couldn't put on. Kayla also kept me updated on the progress of my vehicle. I highly recommend going here. Leroy the Rottweiler who will greet you, is such a sweet dog. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body.

🎉🎉🎉🎉

We appreciate when customers take time to leave us a review and give shout outs to our crew by name!

If you are in need of auto body repairs give us a call! Kayla and the crew are ready to assist you in getting your car back to new as quickly as possible.

We all know that Leah wears many hats and this past Easter she made her debut as Leo the Lion. 🦁

Leah is very generous with her time and talents here at the shop as well as in her community. This past Easter she spread her contagious joy at the CF Lion's Club Easter egg hunt. We are pretty sure she had as much fun as all the kids did that day!

Thank you Leah for all you do, we think you are amazing! ❤

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Fridays!

I am so impressed with Glacier Collision Worx and the great job they did on my vehicle. They were absolutely professionals from start to finish! I had a crunched timeline on getting the vehicle completed, and they worked hard to make it happen! Every interaction with them was really good and their attention to detail, both inside and out, was impressive. I highly recommend them!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Five Star Friday!

This is a great shop with quality work and great staff members!

The car was completed in a timely manner and it was better than new. The paint matched perfectly and so did the seams. They got my car done before many of the other shops in the valley could. Jake and Rick helped me when I was trying to deal with the other guy's insurance company that wasn't going to pay for my car rental when the accident was totally his fault. Thank you, it was such a stressful ordeal, and you all made it a lot more tolerable for me!

Jake and the front office folks called at least weekly with updates and status reports. The owners Rick and Leah always had a smile on their face whenever I walked in the door. And shop dog Leroy, aka gentle giant, is always there to greet a new face.

I highly recommend this shop, not only for the quality of their work, but also for the highly skilled people that work there. If I ever have a need for an auto body repair, Glacier Collision Worx will be my only call.

Here at Glacier Collision Worx we want to keep you safe and legal on the road until your repair date.

With the influx of drivers in the Flathead valley, most repair dates are a minimum of 6-8 weeks out. We know you can't safely drive with one headlight or taillight during that time.

If possible we will complete "temp repairs" to keep you safely on the road until your repair date.

Stop by Glacier Collision Worx to see if this is an option for you after your fender bender.
