Among Monroe’s beloved colorful characters was a fruit salesman named Tom Reid. When Mr. Reid could no longer walk the streets of Monroe peddling his wares, he ran errands for Mr. Noe at KNOE and Albert Thibeaux to earn his keep. They ended up serving as pallbearers at his funeral in July, 1948. The Apple Man rests in an unmarked grave at Riverview. You can read about him and his beloved pet dog Louise in a Monroe magazine from the 30’s called “The Hourglass” here: https://louisianadigitallibrary.org/islandora/object/oplib-orv%3A16 . I made him a Findagrave memorial you can see here: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/221860410/thomas-davidson-reid?
