I have been hearing about the plane crash as it was a tragedy so distant from home and sad to find out one of the lost lives in this tragedy was a beloved gas station owner from Tustin California. Today I found out that the gas station that I and many other Tustin residents have visited would feel the loss of the this far distant tragedy. The owner who was loved by almost anyone who stepped foot into his gas station/ marketplace was among the 168 lives lost in the plane crash. the owner not only made sure you felt welcomed but he also made sure that if he could he would know you by your first name. I live 1 block from the gas station for a year now and not one day did go by if i visited the gas station that he would not only always remember my name but also my regular shopping needs. Not only did his customers love him but his employees loved him even more. One in particular said that with this tragedy he lost a good friend not a boss. I find it only justice to acknowledge him here in California since so many will miss his smile each day and his presence at the gas station. A tragedy that we just see as a world event will and has affected many here in Southern California, because we lost a beloved gas station owner who made us feel at home and welcomed at his establishment.
you have no idea hun. i lived across the street and spent my childhood in there. my neighbors were Manny and his son Chris. we were so close and he truely was a great man. he loved his job and cared for his workers. He is missed everyday.
