Letter: Beloved ‘Peanut Man’ will be missed by many

Beloved ‘Peanut Man’ will be missed by many

On Oct. 16, Larry Owens, who was also known as “the Peanut Man,” died on his way to Sunday services.

Owens sold peanuts at Coca-Cola Field for three decades. Everyone loved him. He was a caring, down-to-earth, dedicated, respectable friend. He will be missed by many, not only at the stadium, but by all who knew him.

Mike Billoni, a former manager of the Bisons, said Owens will be honored by having his sign, scoop and a bag of peanuts in the team’s Hall of Fame.

People like Owens are what makes America so great – not those “locker room, gutter mouth” people who claim our elections are “rigged.” Such people can’t even lead a good, decent life, let alone lead a country.

In all of my 90 years, I have never seen so much chaos, corruption and cut-throat campaigning.
