Town Square

At 99 he's still going strong

Original post made on Jun 24, 2010

Louie Givich has a story for everything. He can describe exactly how Mountain View looked the year he was born, in a house where two palm trees now stand next to an In-n-Out Burger. He remembers the bootlegger's building and who all his neighbors were. And that was 99 years ago.

I grew up with their Great Nephews. Uncle Louie and Aunt Ada are wonderful! No doubt he is a character & she a sweetheart.
