He went overseas in w.w.2 and never come home. The bike hung in their garage until sold to their neighbor , who I bought it from in Quartzite Az.in 2010. I still have the paper racks for it and notice the license plate. The hockey stick was made for the Ottawa Canada team, I think they were called the Senators back then.

Not so sad ? if the bike had not been saved then it’s owners story would not have been on here ! 
He must have loved his bike and been proud on his paper round ?‍♂️
Now he’s being thought about and his bike is still getting the love he gave it ??
