Byron was born in San Antonio and grew up in Houston. He studied business administration at the University of Houston. As a student, he founded a moving and storage company, Rusk Moving, which he operated until 1984. Rusk Moving specialized in office moving and storage for businesses. Byron has been in the car care business since 1980, when he started RMS Auto Care at Westheimer and Woodhead. He is an Accredited Automotive Manager from the Automotive Management Institute and continues to take advantage of all learning opportunities for himself and his staff to improve his business.

Byron and his fiancée Ginger have two dogs, a Beagle and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Byron enjoys reading, cooking and golf. Both he and Ginger are avid opera fans and support Opera in the Heights.

Some favorite Heights area haunts for the Byron and Ginger include Opera in the Heights, Shade, Penzey’s, Carter & Cooley, BB’s Cajun, and Heights Presbyterian Church on Sunday, where Byron serves as an ordained Elder.

Yesterday’s Service…

Byron Rusk opened RMS Auto Care at 1759 Westheimer at Woodhead in 1980.

There was a time when your neighborhood service station was a trusted place, where everyone knew you and knew all about your car. They took good care of everything, and they were all about taking good care of their customers.

Byron Rusk opened RMS Auto Care in 1980 with the on-going goal of providing world class service, technology and talent, and making sure that we always take very good care of our customers and their cars and trucks.

We are still located at 1759 Westheimer (at Woodhead) and trusted neighborhood service is still alive and well at RMS Auto Care.

We believe in the tradition of taking good care of our customers, with advice you can trust, providing excellent neighborhood services and working with the best technicians who use the latest technology.
