                                               "Mr. Willy"
 
                        Mr. Willy was a friend of mine and a fixture at my cousin's store, Lakeveiw
                        Market.   He sit on that bench for  half of my adult life....and I sat with him a
                         big part of that time.  When his family requested the portrait, we both agreed
                        that he needed to be sitting on the bench in front of the store......you could
                        always find him there except for lunch and bedtime (sometimes then!)   Willy
                        was a true jack of all trades.......he knew a little about everything from farming,
                        building, electrical, pumps ....you name it, if he didn't know, he wouldn't let on.
                        One time he and the retired sheriff (also a retired farmer) got into an argument
                        about which way a hillside plow turned over at the end of the row.   After about
                       three days of heated argument they both drove to an old antique farm store
                        that had one.........Willy was right and proved his point........that was Willy.   The
                        front of Lakeview Market will never be the same.
