My name is Audrey. If you’ve been to “The Bear” you probably know me as “Huck’s granddaughter”. Well granddaughter I am. With some guidance from my mother, I run my grandfather’s establishment with all my focus on making him proud. My “Papa”, as his grandchildren call him, along with my grandmother are very celebrated by all of us and close to our hearts.
Papa purchased this building in 1982, partnering with his friend John. Before I was even a thought in my mother’s mind, Huck “Little” and John “Bear” created the now Tiverton staple known as Li’l Bear. John left the business some years later to pursue other endeavors, leaving my Papa to run the place solo. Having my incredible, best friend of grandmother and five children at home, Papa put his all into this place. In fact he puts his heart in everything he does, even his personal comedy act, but that’s another story.
