His wave became a regular part of his daily routine for commuters merging onto I-30 near the 114 exit. However, the Can Man has been conspicuous in his absence over the last few months.
The Saline Courier caught up with this familiar face recently and here is his story.
His name is Dotsey Neal. He is 75-years-old. His brother, George Neal, is 78 and spoke for Dotsey during the interview.
