The owner of one of Springfields’ oldest restaurants and Lebanon native Wayne Rader has died. The announcement came this morning on a Facebook post. Rader and his wife Susan were the owners and operators of Pappys Place. The Raders’ purchased the restaurant and pub in November of 2019 and earlier this month announced plans to expand the facility at 943 North Main Street near Grant Beach Park in Springfield. The building for Pappy’s Place, known for its barbecue food, opened in 1926 as George Bills’ Cafe, according to past Springfield Business Journal reporting. The cafe was issued Springfield’s first liquor-by-the-drink license following the repeal of prohibition in 1933, and it took on Pappy’s name in 1971. The Raders’ also owned and operated Rader Manor a 130-year-old 15,000 square-foot bed and breakfast and event facility located in Springfield. Rader was a 1981 graduate of Lebanon High School. Funeral arrangements are pending.
