I lived on North 4th Avenue from 1960 to 67. Wolfman was harmless. He was a shell shocked vet. He would jump out and scare you at night. He would follow you through the neighborhoods and scare you but he never hurt anyone. He hung out in East Lake which is now called Oakhurst Village. He would sit in front of the drug store and point and laugh at you. He smoked lucky strike cigaretts. I was standing beside him in line at the drug store one day. I was little, looked next to me and saw a hand with long fingernails, heard the man say "lucky strike" and I realized I was standing next to Wolfman......poor man.

I remember him hanging around the laundry mat down from Oakhurst Elem at East Lake. My mother knew that seeing him scared me, But she would assure me that he would do no harm. It's a shame that VET's during that error didn't have the help that we have to day. I spent 12 yrs ended up with PTSD, Said F*** it, Got where I didn't care no more. Wife helped a lot. Ended up with Long Hair, Beard and Tattoo's Was told his name back then, But forgot it over the years, That was in the mid 60's. Hope people we're kind toward HIM. Like the CREATOR intended us to be!!!
