The beloved Cotton Candy man has passed away. [ PG ]
Some knew Mr. Geidel as the Cotton Candy Guy, the Lemonade Guy, or the "Coke here!" Guy. His no-nonsense, trudging-through-the-rain work ethic endeared him to fans of the Pirates, Steelers and Penguins since he began selling goods through the aisles of Three Rivers Stadium in 1985.
With the Cotton Candy man's passing a little piece of Pittsburgh culture dies as well. It is difficult to explain, but there was always something about hearing his voice amongst the buzz of the crowd.
Rest in peace old friend.
