    I knew that was Charlie Balzarini and now I recognize Leroy Silva. To us old timers that wasn’t so long ago.

    As a child, my sister and I used to stay with our grandparents, Ken and Elizabeth Vincent, for a couple of weeks during the summers. I remember “Charlie the fisherman”, as we called him, coming to their home selling fresh fish from the back of his old truck. There’s was nothing better than fresh fish for dinner!

  8. Bob Travers says:

    The Charlie you refer to was Charlie Nelson who sold fresh fish from his truck for many years.

  9. Mary Mintz says:

    Definitely Charlie….I took care of him when I worked for Action years ago at Millbrook Park
