T.G. Frick Service Station In Comanche, Texas

Cyndra Frick, daughter of T.G. and Evelyn Frick, sent the following photo of her dad’s service station to me. Cyndra was an all-state basketball player for CHS and a CHS graduate. I don’t know about the 1958 café that stands just beyond the service station. By the time I can remember, it was Charlie Marshal’s and later Karen’s. Who remembers what it was in ’58?


Those were the days! Remember when you didn’t have to pump your own gas and wash your own windshield? And someone very nicely asked if he should check your oil? I loved it!

About Fredda Jones

Fredda Davis Jones was raised “in the country” in Comanche County and learned very early that creativity and innovation are traits that can flourish even in small-town Texas and that with enough effort, indeed nothing is impossible, including being married to the same man for over 40 years! Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for texansunited.com and marketing small-town Texas.
