  • Dennis Weaver - He came to my place of work (machine shop). I was walking up the aisle and he was coming in the opposite direction, he graciously held out his hand and ask how it was going, we conversed for a minute and I continued on my way, a very friendly fellow.

  • Richard lewis - I was visiting the Sistine Chapel in Rome on my honeymoon. It is a strange experience because of course everyone is staring at the ceiling the whole time, but I happened to look to my left and Richard Lewis was standing right next to me also staring up. I didn't say anything to him because I didn't want to break his concentration.

  • Van Johnson - I was associated with a theater in Wesley Hills, New York when it was presented to the board that we sponsor a production of Love Letters starring Van Johnson and Betsy Palmer. The President asked a ridiculous question which he considered a problem. Who could drive Van to and from the theater each night? My hand shot up and I became his personal driver for the three performances. Van was an experience. We talked about many things, including a joke he made about his children "I hate 'em all!" (I wonder how true it was). Whenever he didn't feel like talking, he'd turn off his hearing aid. He was something else. One night after I dropped him off, he locked me out of my car. We stopped at his place and I ran around to help him out of the car. As he got up, his hand came down on the lock and he slammed the door, locking me out. I had to call my wife in the middle of the night to come and pick me up (the motor was still running). She and I laughed about that. He was a little frail during this time. It was to be his last public performance. However, on stage, he was strong and vibrant, always. He never missed a beat. I will always remenber those days.

  • I was a TSA at the Fayetteville, NC Regional Airport when we got a call saying that Muhammed Ali was going to be coming through. He had been at a Muslim conference and march. I grabbed a piece of paper and asked for his autograph. He had two bodyguards with him but I was amazed how much taller he was than they were. He was so nice and even gave me two autographs. One for myself and one to give to someone else. I had the distinction of being the last person they spoke to when they left Fayetteville. He really is the Greatest!!

  • John Walsh - My wife and I were in a jewelry store in the Vero Beach Mall and she told me "there's that guy from TV over there." I was not sure who she meant so I walked over and saw for myself it was John Walsh. He seemed pretty nice when we asked him if we might take a picture with him, he said "sure" and I guess he's a take charge kind of guy because without hesitation he grabbed a guy passing by and gave him our cellphone and said please take a picture of all of us... The pics came out great but later on I saw that he had had his hands all over my wife! ha ha, true story, I have the pictures to prove it :)

  • Doc Severinsen - In 1975 I was in New Orleans for Mardi Gras. During one of the evening parades down Canal Street I was wandering down a side street after having a bit too much Mardi Gras cheer. One of the floats from the parade had pulled off Canal and come to a stop and I was standing beside it when I looked up and saw Doc Severinsen in one of his most outragous outfits. He had been in the parade. I looked up and yelled "Hiya, Doc!" as if I knew him. He laughed, crouched down and spoke to me about the celebration, before the float started up again. He was way friendlier to to me than I deserved. What a great guy.

  • Conway Twitty - In 1958 I was in high school in Sanford, Fla. and the school used to host rock n' roll concerts in the gym after school. Seems like at the time Conway had not yet really crossed over to country and he was doing a concert that afternoon. Our pastor knew Conway from their youth so he came to the concert and arranged for me to meet Conway back stage. He was so gracious and interested in me personally and I really enjoyed my visit with him. Our Pastor, Rev. Don Gravenmier, kinda enjoyed the visit about as much as I did. I will never forget it!

  • Peter Fonda - I was in Sturgis, South Dakota for the biker rally that takes place the first full week in August. This was the 30th anniversary for the movie "Easy Rider" and Peter Fonda was there "promoting". My husband rode his Harley from Ohio to Sturgis, but I flew out. I was in Rapid City boarding a commuter plane to Salt Lake City and when I entered the small plane, Peter Fonda was already on the plane sitting next to the window. I looked at my ticket and lo and behold my seat was right next to his! I sat down and said hello, he said hello back and then I said, "If you are not Peter Fonda then you have to be his identical twin!" He laughed and shook my hand and said, yes, he was in fact Peter Fonda. We talked all the way from Rapid City to Salt Lake City. He was very nice, and very tall and skinny! Great memory!
