He was a sweet man. I met him first while working at Hardees. He would come in almost daily to get his wife some food. Then i left and went to Village Inn, were he would come in by him self and eat. He told me some funny jokes... Always put a smile on when i seen him, he was so kind. Rip sir, thanks for serving!
