Originally established in Port Angeles, WA by Pat Quinn in 1952.

Pat Quinn, "the old hard-head."

Pat Quinn was raised on a dairy farm in Sequim WA, on the Olympic Peninsula. At age 16, he moved to Santa Monica, CA, and continued with his sports interests, particularly track and boxing. While out bowling one evening, a movie stage-hand noticed him because of his resemblance to Mickey Rooney, who was acting in a movie with a few boxing scenes. In addition to their physical resemblance, the clincher for Pat being cast as Mr. Rooney's double was Pat being a Golden Gloves boxer.  

Pat's patience was tested while waiting through multiple scenes and takes over three movies, and he decided some form of "steady" work would better suit him.  He happened across a glass shop with a "help-wanted" sign and this began his apprenticeship as a glazer.  His new-found skills took him to Colorado and Alaska before he returned to Washington, founding Quinn Glass in Port Angeles in 1952.  In autumn of 1957, Pat moved his family to Oak Harbor, with the majority of his work being done on the growing, NAS Whidbey.  At age 55, Pat retired, but he continued to help us out on a regular basis with larger projects until age 80, when he rightly earned hanging up his glazing gloves.

We fondly refer to him as "the old hard-head."

“It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that’s all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.”
