Our Team

Xcel Service and Repair is locally owned and operated by John and Heather Williams. While working in the oil field industry for over 16 years, John Williams noticed the need for a truck repair shop in the area to offer integrity in business with quality work in a timely fashion. In May 2013, he and his wife Heather took a leap of faith and opened their own business with solid core values, offering just that.

John is a graduate of Philip Barbour High School and the Ohio Diesel Technical Institute. He has 30+ years of experience. John spent the first half of his career working on oil field trucks and equipment at BJ Services/Baker Hughes. During the last ten years, he has honed his skills working on a plethora of vehicles from farm tractors to Fuso’s.  John is a gifted mechanic with troubleshooting skills, a skilled welder, and knowledgeable fabricator. His compulsive attention to detail means he won’t settle for less than the best in any work he does. John’s hobbies include working on his project vehicles and riding his Harley.

Heather is Stonewood native and graduate of Washington Irving High School. Post high school, she received an associate degree from Fairmont State University becoming a Registered Veterinary Technician.  Heather spent the first half of her career working at several local veterinary hospitals. She then returned to Fairmont State University to complete her bachelor’s degree in Allied Health Administration in 2010, with a focus on business.  She worked as the Health and Safety Director at the American Red Cross for NCWV for some time. Then the opportunity arose to work with John at a local repair shop. Soon after working together for someone else, the vision was cast to start their own business, and the rest is history.  Heather’s favorite past time is teaching, and she has done so for over 20 years teaching teenagers and children in her local church.
