After putting together quite the life, from owning restaurants in the 60s to a bit role in So I Married an Ax Murderer, Leo Rossi—the local legend weighing "300 to 550 pounds"—died this week: "Beloved by his customers, friends, neighbors and by the pets who hung around his shop waiting for the leftovers, Mr. Rossi was too big a man for one career. He was a bartender, a restaurateur, a chef, an entrepreneur, a champion fisherman and an occasional actor in movies and TV shows." [Chron]
