Luke Russell and Howard Pykles outside our original location at 4611 University Avenue circa 1952. Luke and Howard were not only business partners but brother-in laws as well. Luke married Howard’s youngest sister Mim who still lives in La Mesa today. Our business may have changed a bit over the years, but the thing that holds true is the fact that we are Family owned and operated. Today Luke and Howard’s sons, Steve Russell and Craig Pykles continue to serve their community as faithful La Mesa plumbers and contractors.
