Stephen R. Ames, 78, of Marlborough, NH, died at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon at the Jack Byrne Palliative Care Center on December 20, 2020, after succumbing to injuries related to a fall at his home. He suffered from PSP; a neurological illness considered an atypical Parkinson's.
Son of Forrest C. "Amesy" and Hester (Small) Ames, Steve grew up in Tynsgsborough, Mass. and was a graduate of Nashua High School as well as Middlebury College and Columbia University in Mechanical Engineering.
He was the founder of Ames Performance Engineering and Ames Automotive Enterprises, both businesses related to the Pontiac restoration industry.
He is survived by his wife Joan of Marlborough as well as several nieces and nephews and cousins. (And everyone in the classic Pontiac world!)
Per Steve's wishes, there will be no services but his life will be celebrated through the Ames Automotive Foundation and future tours at his museum.
