Tonight's Car Show, the Year's Last, Will Honor William Bertoti

2014's first car show was well-attended.
 William Bertoti
The year's final car show of the Pottstown Classics Car Club tonight will be held in memory of William, "Bert" Bertoti, longtime auto shop teacher at Pottstown High School who died July 19 at the age of 65.

Born and bred in Pottstown, Bertoti graduated from Pottstown High School and was an auto shop teacher there for 20 years.

He was also a U.S. Army veteran from the Vietnam War.

A scholarship has been set up in his name -- the Willy Bertoti Memorial Scholarship Fund -- and contributions can be made to it by sending them C/O Santander Bank 1565 E. High Street Pottstown, PA 19464

This scholarship fund will be used for Pottstown High School students to go to secondary automotive service schools. 

There will also be a table at the car show, held on High Street from 5 to 9 p.m., where donations to the scholarship can be made.

The car show will also feature Rainbow the Clown and a children's craft tent run by the Pottstown Parks and Recreation Department.


  1. Willy "Bert" Bertoti, a true friend and co-worker! You will be missed deeply by your family, co-wokers, friends, and students! You reside forever in our memories that will always make us smile! - Miles

  2. Willie was my husband's uncle (mine too). He was one of the greatest men I have ever had the privilege of knowing. He was a teacher, mentor, husband, father, and friend. He had a sense of humor and a contagious laugh I miss terribly. I will carry those fond memories he gave me over the past 27 years he was a part of my life. I love you Uncle Willie, now and always!! <3 ~ Maria

  3. Good drivers are always concerned about the overall maintenance of their vehicle- starting with the physical condition of the vehicle.
