In Memory of Mike Moldowan — The Man Behind the Fries




Mike Moldowan died in July 28, 2008 at the young age of 96 years old. Yesterday I saw his truck for sale, and the memories began to flow. There was and is– no one like Mike and his fries, and the town of Carleton Place will forever miss the summer traditions of Mike’s Fries. Ted Hurdis said,

If you asked Mike if he was making lots of money. His reply was always ” I don’t make money just chips “. As a kid we used to clean up at night around the wagon and he would give us free chips…great guy…no one dared ask for ketchup at Mikes chip wagon you didn’t need it just butter.”


So I went searching and found his Obituary online and printed it here so we can always have a permanent recollection of the Man Behind the Fries.
