Recommended Posts

As President of the Garden State Towing Association, I regret to inform you that Mary Leigh Barbusin, our Executive Director has passed away on August 26, 2022. She was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer at the end of last year and has been having on-going aggressive treatments this year. She has been with GSTA since 1996 and has become a part of our lives for 26 years. She has been a true friend and leader in the New Jersey and National towing industry. She brought joy and happiness to everyone that she met and came in contact with. She helped change and better the towing industry from the day she arrived to the end. I know we will sadly miss her and never forget the love, joy, dedication and commitment she gave to us and the towing community. She dedicated her life to make our towing community a better place for the future. I am grateful that our lives and our journey through life was able to meet and come together.
Rest in Peace.
We all will miss you.
John Glass
