About The Owner

Michael Darby, owner of Darby Diesel Repair, was born in 1967 in Abilene, Texas and is known by most as “Darby”. He attended Texas State Technical Institute in Sweetwater, Texas where he received his Diesel Repair Certification in October 1987. Darby worked full-time as a diesel mechanic for Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) from February 1988 to January 2000. While working full-time at DART, he worked part-time as a diesel mechanic at Yellow Freight from 1988 to 1989 and from 1989 to 1992 worked part-time as an independent contractor on diesel trucks, motorcoaches and commercial equipment.

He purchased a repair business in May 1992 and opened Darby Coach, repairing buses, motor coaches and trucks. When Darby was not working full-time at DART he was focused on building his own business and in January of 2000 he left DART to pursue his dream. Darby Diesel Repair grew out of a dream, determination, sacrifice and hard work.
