My sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Bob O'Shea...........
He was an awesome man whom I still remember so fondly of. I grew up in Solomon Homes and it was his store that I always frequented. He and Nelly Spencer worked the front giving us more than just a few pieces of penny candy.
To this day I always try to visit the store when I go home to Johnstown.
God Bless Bob; you have made so many people very happy!!!
