Mr. Fix-It

Mr. Holigan , I always thought was an odd last name, since it sounded Irish but he was obviously black. In an impulsive moment one day I asked him about it, and he replied without hesitation that his mother was African-American and his dad was Irish. Mr. Holigan had a University decal on his truck, he told me he was college educated, but chose to be a truck mechanic. He could fix anything he said.

He did not have a repair shop, but instead went to where the trucks were broken down. He was sort of a modern day truck doctor who made house calls. He was known around town as Mr. Fix-It.
