Default Bob Lawton RIP?

I heard this, this morning, but haven't seen it on line yet.
What a great story. The American Dream!

there was an announcement last night. If you google it, I think the Union Leader has a brief story.

So sad. This past summer I saw him sitting on the bench out front near the mini-Spindle Point lighthouse eating an ice cream cone, watching the cars go by.

Saw the same this past summer. What a great story on how he built up such a “fun” place

I was lucky enough to sit and chat with him last year inside the pub. Nice ole guy with lots of stories. I even have a pic somewhere my wife took of the both of us to remember him by.

My hobby for decades has been restoring arcade machines, and I still have a small collection of newer pins, so Funspot has a lot of my money over the years.
