      Aggar and his wife, Viola, operated Aggar's Lunch on Lewiston's Main Street from 1948 to 1955 and opened Italian Gardens in North Lewiston in 1956. They retired in 1963.

      He was born Feb. 22, 1900, in El Paso, Texas, to John and Josephine Aggar. He attended school at El Paso and at the age of 15 he moved to Montana. He worked on ranches for a time and then was employed by the U.S. Forest Service and in logging jobs until 1928.
