I'm sorry to hear about the passing of L.C. Green.
His store was next to Buie's City Cafe, so I got to
He was a great businessman and lots of fun to hang with.
I got that bit from Tony Narducci, L.C.'s
I haven't seen or heard from him in forty years.
Maybe I can see him again.

When I was in High School, I worked part time at L.C. Green's Clothing Co. on Foster St.
I often wondered what happened to L.C. I'm sure he must either be deceased or in his 80's
He was a very colorful character, sort of like Ebeneezer Scrooge.
He and Charlie Merceir
used to yell at each other across Foster st. and call each other names. I think at one time they were
in business together and there was some bad blood between them.
Maybe Buddy Buie would know.
LC and Charlie both are deceased. LC’s wife is still living. I saw her in the grocery store a couple of months ago. I worked with LC’s brother, Heidi Green at Stephenson’s IGA from ’64-’66 along with some other colorful people.
Bill you are right, Charlie and LC used to keep Foster St entertained.
I bought clothes from both of them.
