In the beginning, Don Freeman decided in 1982 that he wanted to start his own business. He started with $500 and a pile of wood. He built a garage at our house and we devoted our life to our business called Don's Garage. As time went on we expanded and bought one wrecker to start towing vehicles. Don's passion was anything to do with automobiles. The business and Don's reputation grew. We picked up the contract to tow all Delaware City Police Departments impounds about 1985 and still hold that contract today. In addition we tow for local businesses, many individuals, and motor clubs. As business grew we relocated to Delaware City for approximately 10 years, changing the name to Don's King Lube & Towing. Then moving back to our original starting point built a new bigger garage and storage lot at our present location: 1749 Cole Rd, Ashley, OH.

The towing business grew, family members joined to help, and it became a family affair. We called the wrecker drivers Road Warriors, always ready and willing to go out in whatever weather conditions day or night to help people in distress with their automobiles. Making the change to concentrate on the wrecker side of the business, Don stopped the auto repair and put all of his time in towing.
As a sole proprietor Don and I had little time for vacation or relaxation. Don was always out in a truck and I was dispatching and doing office work. Cell phones made life easier. Our daughter Tracy helped in the office and son in law Dan became a wrecker operator for the business. Our dates and vacation consisted of going on local tow calls together or out of state tows for vacation. Our life revolved around the business that Don built, but allowed us to spend a lot of time together. We were very blessed to have 38 years together, raised two beautiful caring daughters, have two awesome sons-in-law, and three precious grand-children, and one on the way.

In January 2013, Don was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, but continued to run the business. On April 6, 2014, Don passed away and now I am trying to carry on his legacy of caring and helping people in distress with their vehicle towing needs.

Don and I always took pride in our company, and truly enjoyed helping others out. I plan to continue the same pride and dedication to our customers as has been happening for 34 years. Call 740-363-0852 for all your towing needs.
