Remembering Buster: Peers and employees remember Spaulding as great businessman, person
BEMIDJI—A Bemidji businessman whose car dealership was a staple in the community for decades died Sunday.
Known by most as "Buster," Willis Spaulding passed away at the age of 94, leaving behind a legacy of professionalism and kindness.
"He was a true gentleman, there was no doubt about that," said Jim Fankhanel, owner of Bemidji Chrysler Center. "I bought his business and through that transaction, he was very fair and honest. I was never a customer of his, but he was always a gentleman to deal with."
