The City of Gonzales
About one hundred years after shots were fired for Texas Independence. When sodas were less than fifty cents, the milk truck dropped off milk at your doorstep and cigars were reasonably priced. It was around this time period Aaron Brasfield Sr opened his auto repair shop.
A community where everyone knew you and on Sunday morning you could walk to church
For as long as I could remember, I worked in the garage. Filling the soda machine, putting tools away and sweeping the floor, there was always something to do. By the age of twelve I was towing vehicles and rebuilding engines.
Aaron Brasfield was a respected man liked by all
Some time ago - I was at an event in Houston, Texas
We were told the Army Reserve Commander was making rounds to each organizationHe approached and while shaking my hand looked at my name tag and asked if I was related to Aaron Brasfield.
Early on the shop started as a place where you could by gas, groceries and get your vehicle repaired
