In today’s Sun-Times there’s an obituary for William “Willie” Greene, lakefront fisherman and longtime owner of Park Bait bait shop at Montrose Harbor:

“Willie” Greene, as known to lakefront fishermen, died Saturday night at Quincy Veterans Home. Mr. Greene, 84, took over Park Bait, the corner bait shop at Montrose Harbor, from his employer in 1956.

“That was his life,” his daughter Stacey Greene-Fenlon said. “That lake was his world. He used to get a kick out of when a kid would come in and say, ‘Oh, my dad brought me here when I was little.’ He loved that generational stuff.”
