This group is a great cross section of the Toledo area, not only geographically, but across time, as well. So I'm gonna throw this out there, just in case one of you might know the answer.
I'm trying to recall the name of a guy... Tom, perhaps? He owned a carpet cleaning business (and some other things) back in the mid-to-late 1970s. Tom? Thomas? I remember that he was very interesting. Short in stature. Prematurely balding, I believe. He was no older than 30 at the time.
Ring a bell?
