Meanwhile in 1977, Troy St. John, Bill's oldest son, being pursued by Chico residents for service, purchased a service rig and started ST. JOHN WATER WELL PUMP SERVICE. Troy had worked from the beginning with his father and had learned the business from the "ground down"
and provided service to many customers in the area. Troy later expanded into well drilling and is a licensed master well driller and pump installer.
After Bill's death, Troy had the Bowie phone number of his father turned back on to be able to give customers service and to continue the legacy of his father. Many customers were pleased to learn that Troy would continue in his father's footsteps.
So today continuing the tradition of his father, with over 49 years of valuable experience, Troy St. John continues to provide that same "hands on"
experience to the customers.
