Not much has been written about this Famous North Tonwanda “Gentle Giant” who stood over 7 feet tall. It was said that he did the work of three men every day of his life. His hands and fingers were huge, you could pass a fifty cent piece through his finger ring. He was a very intelligent man Dripping with Class.
In the early 1950’s he played “Goliath” in the Twentieth Century Fox movie “David and Goliath”. I met him many years ago when he worked for the International Paper Company in North Tonawnada, (my brother Mark and his friend John Sheehan worked there during summer break with Mr. Talun). Rest in Peace my friend.
