As I, at 65, first heard of his places on Rege Cordic's and Bob Tracy's shows on KDKA in the late '50's I would have thought Mr. Garneau to have been "long gone". God Blessed him him with a long life. (BTW: he and my boyhood hero, Ralph Kiner, are about the same age; Kiner still lives
Yes, I ate at his North Hills place with my H.S. and college buds many times on our way back to lleechef's
and my alma mater
after seeing the Mighty Bucs at Forbes Field and Three Rivers.
AYCE of really decent
food was quite a novelty then and Mr. Garneau filled that bill quite nicely.
BTW: we always made it a point to go to the Bucs v. Dodgers when Koufax was scheduled. In his five year prime, Koufax was the best there ever was and the best that ever will be. If you did not see him "live", you have absolutely no idea.
Re: The Great One - both Mays and Aaron called him the best they ever played against. R.I.P.
