If you've had car trouble over the past five decades, there's a pretty good chance Frank Kalinec has helped you out.
The founder of A-1 Towing in Bryan died Tuesday at the age of 76.
It was more than 50 years ago that "Doc" founded A-1, and word of his work has spread throughout the state.
The Towing and Storage Association made him a hall of fame member in 2005.
He's survived by his wife and five children.
