I moved to Gary in 2012. We met at the gas station and weekly I would stop and sit on the bench at the gas station with him. We snacked and laughed over coffee. He became a friend to my granddaughter as well. He reminded me so much of my dad and I always told him that. Out of habit I still look for his truck at the gas station. What a sweet man!
