We’re saddened to report the death of Chris Schott, one of the managers at Kern Machinery, who was featured in our Dealership Minds report in the February 2016 issue of Farm Equipment. Chris, who had been with Kern Machinery for 31 years, was the parts operation manager. He started at the Delano, Calif., store as a “counter man” in 1984, eventually becoming the parts manager for the store for 25-plus years. He was the parts manager for 3 years at the Bakersfield store before taking on the role of parts operations manager.
