You must be referring to Joe Meyer. Several of us with memories of east Dayton, especially around Xenia Ave., have "talked" about Joe on "Dayton Memories Blog" posts. Joe lived with his parents on Church St. and the family moved to Xenia Ave. just below the hill. Joe walked so fast that very few people could keep up with him. He did a lot of errands for Sophie Reichold (store at Xenia and Parrott) in the early sixties. One posting reported last seeing Joe selling flowers on Linden Ave. and believed has since passed on.

Fast Walking Joe had another name. We called him "Fireball Joe" because he would give fireball candy to the kids in the neighborhood.
