Famed Collector of Rt. 66 Artifacts Passes Away


He was a service-station owner who became a beacon for people hoping to keep the magic of Route 66 alive.

 

Bill Shea converted one of his Springfield gas stations into a museum, full of memorabilia about America’s love affair with the Mother Road.

 

Shea died over the weekend, just over two weeks shy of his 92nd birthday.

 

Shea’s museum on Peoria Road has not been open for regular hours since last year, because of his declining health.
