The Passing of a Great Friend to AEP Campers

Discussion in 'Southeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by maggot, Feb 16, 2009.

  1. I know it's a bit late for this post but on November 30th 2008 Bob Post, owner of the Quick Exchange Store...formerly know as The Old Man's Money was killed in an automobile accident on Rt. 78 at Olive Green. Bob will greatly be missed by all that knew him. He was a great friend to me and I miss him very much. The store won't seem to be the same without him. So while your down fishing and camping this season stop in at the store and say hi to his wife Jan who will still be running the store. God Bless you all and make every day on this Earth count because you never know when it will end. Here one minute and gone the next....poof!

    When we are down there to the promise land we are at the store at least 2 times a day if not more. We have always been treated well there! We will always support the store! God Bless all the family! See you in the Spring!

    What a shame. We spent many a rainy day sitting on the porch just listening to his stories about the "old days" and how many good ponds there were around close to Old Man's Money. That name will endure forever no matter what the sogn out front says. Sympathies to the family and his many friends, both there and on this site.

    I'll send a prayer for the guy & his family who owns an awesome store out in the country. That store (if i'm not mistaken) has been there a long time. And those folks are salt of the earth. May God bless them in their time of need.
     
  6. I just went down this past weekend and heard the news. So sad. What a great guy. He has helped me out so many times down there I could never repay him. So sad to hear about this and I guess Jan is not doing so hot now either. What a shame. My prayers go out to them.

    I would like to thank each and everyone of you from the bottom of my heart. It's very clear that you all truly new my father. I'm his eldest child and his namesake(Jr.) I too miss my friend. God Bless...

    My heart goes out to you and your family. Your father was a very nice person. Over the last 30 years of hunting/fishing Ohio Power I was lucky enough to get to know him. He will be missed. God Bless

  9. Maggot, I don't want to steal the respect your thread deserves but can you tell me where exactly the Quick Exchange is located? I am in the Ohio Power area frequently during deer season and would like to stop in to give my condolences. I am sure I have been in Bob's store at some time. Thanks. :G
     
  10. It's on St Rt 78 in Reinersville. It's the store with the big steel cow and green home made John Deere tractor out front with 5 flag poles...used to have the old army tank sitting out front, we have 2 black bears

  16. rt 78 is dangerous and people fly on that road I am surprised more people aren't in accidents. My mom lives in Malta and I live in Canton I always take 77 south to 78 into McConnelsville then on across the river and up to there place. I see some crazy stuff every time I go down there. I hate to hear about people coming to such premature ends it's really sad. We stop in the store when we are down for the flea markets.
