    Mee Too, When I was going to go drop of my aunt at Parker, (her job) we passed the little walkway where you have to go under it , We seen him by the orange stand with his black dog and he was wearing a white shirt. Then we seen him walking towards East Foothill Blvd. Then we didn’t see him anymore

    Yeah i seen him with his dog when I went bike riding with my dad by that trail on foothill where the orange fruit stand was. We seen him walking north of foothill blvd trowing a ball so that his dog can go and get it. Suddenly he dissapeared behind two old trees that have been dug out and left behind to dry up. I told my dad that he had dissapeared but he didn’t believe me so I searched him up to see if it was a ghost and a bunch of stories poped out about him and then I showed my dad but he still didn’t belive me so we left and went home.

  5. I’ve seen him. I was driving west on Foothill Blvd at around 4 – 6pm. About to turn south on Cherry. No dog. Black and red horizontally striped shirt. Very distinct. He ran right up to my car in heavy traffic, scaring me, as I was almost certain I or another driver might hit him. I looked back instantly, hoping to see that he’d made it safely across the street. He was gone!

  6. I had never heard this story before but seeing the location I searched to see how close it is to the house we used to rent off of Edelweis. It backed the field off of Foothill exactly where this spot is pinned. I believe there might be new homes there now. But when we used to live there (11years ago) I used to see a man walking through the field with a stick and then he would disappear. Always at night and I thought I was imagining things. Now I feel it was this spirit.

  7. I seen a young man with black and white striped shirt and pants. Also wearing a black and white striped top hat carrying a buggy whip. Walking on the North side of foothill. I was driving west on foothill. In the early afternoon. He had a blank stare with a odd hair cut. I was on the phone with my wife at the time and told her, “Look at this weirdo”, as I was passing him. Once passed I looked in my side mirror and he was gone.
