Dick Van Dyke
With more movie credits to his name (82 and counting!) than there are states in the USA , Dick Van Dyke has been a staple in American cinema for ages. You may know him from his many Disney classics, such as Mary Poppins (1964) and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968), but he also had his own T.V show, The Dick Van Dyke Show from 1961- 1966 which was reprised as The New Dick Van Dyke Show and ran from 1971-1974. If you're a fan of Murder Mysteries, you would have enjoyed his series, Diagnosis Murder which ran from 1993-2001. Not one to settle down permanently, he still continues acting today.
Born December 13th, 1925 in West Plains Missouri, Dick Van Dyke was a church going boy who lived a pretty normal life. In high school, he discovered his love of acting in Drama class, but had also considered a career in ministry.
At 16 he took his first job as a radio announcer in Danville, Illinois. He chose not to finish high school, but instead made several eager attempts at enlisting into the armed forces. He was continually denied due to a lack of weight, as he was a tall and skinny youth, but he finally got accepted into the United States Air Force as a radio announcer and also entertained troops as part of the Special Services.
He won a Tony for his stage performance in the musical, Bye Bye Birdie and also has a star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood, CA. Believe it or not, he has never professionally trained as a dancer and did not start dancing until he was in his 30's. He wasn't in a movie until he was 36 and did not receive his high school diploma until he was 78 years old!
So if you ever think that you're too old to start something, think again! "I've retired so many times now it's getting to be a habit." ~Dick Van Dyke
Fantastic customer service. We were out of town when tenants needed help with a plumbing issue. They let us know who was being dispatched to our house then followed up with a very detailed message post work. I would definitely use these guys again.
I can’t say enough good things about this company. Had a sewer repair needed and had a very short amount of time due to closing on a house sale. Every single person I encountered from Marquita doing logistics for my job to every member of the work crew. Friendly, communicated well, totally responsive and really cared to help me through this very stressful job. All of the people I encountered were role models for what a well run service business should be. Much thanks and appreciation. You’re great.
We had a leak and no hot water. Apollo came out same day and not only fixed the problem but made it better and gave us some good advice on our system. Very reasonable and great communication. Would definitely recommend.
Don is always so helpful and knowledgeable. I really appreciate all the crew members on the Apollo team. I'm a Property Manager so typically I will have several projects for Apollo to address during a single visit. They are easy to interact with and EXCELLENT plumbers. I highly recommend Apollo.
Scott, I would like to personally thank you for expediting our plumbing crisis we recently had. If the situation was not resolved immediately we would have had to close for a couple of days. This occured on a Friday for for us a pizza restaurant this would of been devastating. Thank you so much.

It's my absolute pleasure to recommend Karen Johnson at Apollo Plumbing Service. I have had the pleasure of taking a class taught by Karen. Her knowledge and expertise is a huge advantage to my entire office. I know if I am in a pinch I can call the office and talk to someone! Their customer service is truly amazing, and I have had compliments from customers in the past.

We are a Wendy's Restaurant franchisee in Vancouver, Washington and I want to personally thank Scott and his crew at Apollo for invaluable and excellent service to our restaurants over the last several years. We have used Scott's company after failing miserably with Apollo's many competitors. We tried every one before discovering the extraordinary service we enjoy from Scott and his techs.
