  • I was taking a long walk one afternoon, and stopped to rest for a sec on that cool bench in front of his business. He came out and introduced himself and we chatted for a while, trading stories about Chicago history, how the area had changed over the years, and etc. He seemed like a good guy. Sorry to hear of his passing.
