The community of Melton and the automotive industry in Victoria have farewelled local business pioneer and car Dealer Keith Harrison in early May. Over 1,000 people attended Mr Harrison’s funeral, indicating how well respected and popular he was.
Keith began his first automotive related business when aged 21 with a service station and repair business, continuing to grow until he opened the doors of Melton Toyota in 1973 with his wife Joan. The Harrison Motoring Group expanded from there to include many more brands and recently celebrated 50 years in business. In addition to running the dealership, Keith was also involved in the advocacy side of the industry and was a strong supporter of the Victorian Automotive Chamber of Commerce.
Beyond Keith’s professional achievements, his generosity and support of others will forever be remembered. The support that Keith and the Harrison Motoring Group provide to their community and charities such as Relay for Life and the Peter Mac Hospital really set them apart.
On behalf of AADA we extend our deep sympathies to Keith’s wife Joan, his children Nic, Grant, and Brooke, along with his entire family.
