The Nelson County native whose hats went round the world died the day after Christmas.
Joe Evans, who opened the original Rooster Run, retired about 10 years ago, but the store that he made famous remains on Ky. 245, along with the giant fiberglass rooster named Ozzie Frank.
Evans opened his first store when he was still a teenager in a rented building near the railroad tracks in Samuels named Evans Beverage Depot. About five or seven years later, he moved to another location along old Ky. 245, now called Samuels Loop Road.
