Adam and Deanna Eltinge recently purchased Island Petroleum Services from longtime friends Jim and Kate Schuman. Adam is the friendly guy who’s been working behind the counter for the past two years, always eager to help in any way. He and Deanna met at Washington State University and started their family on the mainland, but they’ve always yearned to move to the island. When they did, it was a return home for Deanna. She was born and raised here as a Sundstrom and is excited to be the sixth generation will grow-up in the original farmhouse.

In Adam’s former life, he was a construction project manager of large communities in the Seattle area where he honed his business sense and appreciation of exceptional customer service. He now brings that tradition of customer service to IPS when providing fuel and oil at the Carter Station (as well as Free Air for your tires), the Port of Friday Harbor fuel pier, and customized deliveries.
