Roy E. Ortner, engaged in business as proprietor of an auto repair and paint
garage in Pueblo, was born in Denver on the 24th of August, 1886, and is a son
of George J. and Emma B. (Pryor) Ortner. The father is proprietor of a brass
foundry in Pueblo and is thus actively identified with industrial and
manufacturing interests. He established one of the first foundries in Denver and
continued in business there for some time but about thirty-one years ago removed
to Pueblo, where he also opened a foundry. His wife is also living.
Roy E. Ortner was educated in the public and high schools of Pueblo and
afterward attended the University of Michigan, while Subsequently he became a
student in the School of Mines at Golden, Colorado. He later spent one year in
the foundry with his father and afterward engaged in the automobile business.
His education had qualified him for work of that character because he
specialized in the study of gas engines and similar subjects. He now handles the
White truck and is distributor of that machine for southern Colorado. He
maintains a service station, employing five men, and does a great amount of
repair work. He also repaints automobiles and maintains a garage of the most
modern character, while his business methods have secured to him a liberal and
well deserved patronage.
Mr. Ortner is a member of the Commerce Club and also of the Rocky Mountain
Automobile Association. He gives much of his time to patriotic movements, such
as Liberty Loan and Red Cross work and is doing everything in his power to
uphold the interests of the country in this hour of its crisis. In a business
way he is making good, for he is a young man of marked enterprise and
determination and he carries forward to successful completion whatever he
undertakes. He is persistent and energetic, thoroughly reliable and has ever
recognized the fact that satisfied patrons are the best advertisement. His
energy enables him to overcome all difficulties and obstacles in his path and as
the years go by his business is increasing and has placed him in a creditable
position among the representatives of industrial activity in Pueblo.
