Friends, family, staff and ex-staff packed into the Byron Bay Services Club on Saturday night to help Warren and Dennise Simmons celebrate 40 years running the Byron Service Station.

The respected businessman and community member was overwhelmed with tributes from guests who included the Member for Ballina, Don Page, and a regional NRMA manager, Mario Napoli.

An old NRMA sign used in the garage 30 years ago was returned to Warren by Byron Bay resident Paul McCarthy.

“You can’t get these signs any more,” Warren said. “I really want to thank Paul for returning it.”
Staff painted a picture of a caring and generous employer.

Son Andrew Simmons said it was a pleasure to be following in his father’s footsteps at the garage.
