People who regularly walk that section of the lake knew him, if not by name, by reputation.\u00a0<span style=\"\">Willie was often referred to as the Mayor or Greeter of Lake Merritt - a title, well-suited for a gentleman who loved his life at Lake Merritt and had friends from every walk of life.\u00a0</span></p>\n<p>\n\t<span class=\"image_frame image_frame_border\"><img src=\"_files/IMG_1036.jpg\" style=\"width: 227px; height: 300px;\"></span>\u00a0\u00a0<span class=\"image_frame image_frame_border\"><img src=\"_files/Image%20from%20iOS%20%2824%29.jpg\" style=\"width: 300px; height: 225px;\"><span style=\"width: 300px;\" class=\"image_caption\">Willie at \"his spot\"</span></span></p>\n<p>\n\tIn 2016, Willie disappeared and it was feared he had died.

The goal is to ensure he can forever remain where we all know he belongs: right by his beloved Lake Merritt.</span></p>\n<h3>\n\tLinks and References</h3>\n<ol>\n\t<li>\n\t\t<a href=\"http://www.eastbaytimes.com/breaking-news/ci_30321484/mystery-surrounds-lake-merritt-memorial-willie\">Absence of beloved Lake Merritt mystery man prompts unusual outpouring</a> <em>East Bay Times</em> September 2, 2016</li>\n\t<li>\n\t\t<a href=\"http://www.eastbaytimes.com/breaking-news/ci_30334845/mystery-solved-lake-merritt-salesman-not-dead-after\">Mystery solved, Lake Merritt salesman not dead after all, just recovering from brutal assault</a> <em>East Bay Times</em> September 6, 2016</li>\n</ol>\n<ul>\n\t<li>\n\t\t<p>\n\t\t\t<a href=\"http://www.eastbaytimes.com/2016/09/28/lake-merritt-street-salesman-returns-from-the-dead/\">Lake Merritt street salesman returns from the \u201cdead\u201d</a> <em>East Bay Times</em> September 28, 2016</p>\n\t</li>\n</ul>\n", "region": "https://zh.localwiki.org/api/v4/regions/340/", "history_comment": "Willie has passed, adding in info on how to honor his life and legacy", "history_date": "2022-06-23T14:11:53.703", "history_type": 1, "history_user": "https://zh.localwiki.org/api/v4/users/113590/", "history_user_ip": "" }
