Rest in peace my friend, We worked together at Harrison's  in Lockport. We use to take turns driving . I had a 61 Chevy  impala, Ross had a Corvair .his car had a heater that ran on heated oil, it stunk something terrible. I remember one day on the way to work and I was going to show him how to recover from a spin and well it did not turn out so good. I had to buy a new fire hydrant ,I impailed it into my car so far it had to be cut out. Well I lost track of Ross around 1975.  Rest it Peace my friend. Brad

Folks - Today 2/5/2017 I was fortunate to find and visit Ross Wilcox's grave here in St. Petersburg Florida.  He is buried in Pinellas County at the Bay Pines National Cemetery in a very tranquil setting.  I have a picture of the Marker and will have it posted to his profile.  I will try to find out more info on him and his family.  Ross was a great friend.

Thank you so much Peter for finding more info on Ross...and being able to visit his grave. I worked with Ross at the old Tops in Wrights Corners, and remember every Friday night after work we along with some others would go to Lockport to Pontillos (then on Main St.) for pizza...then on Saturday nights after work we would go to Lancaster Speedway then the airport to watch planes come in and take off and "lift" signs that we could get. lol He was quite a guy and a great friend. I am looking forward to seeing the pic of his grave site. Thanks again.      Pauline     I am hoping someone can find out more about Carl McGinnis. He was also a good friend of my families.
