Erected in 1989, the Hobo Joe in Buckeye, Arizona, is ­one of the­ only remaining statues that once fronted a now-defunct restaurant chain called Hobo­ Joe's.

This 40-foot-tall statue is enjoying a second career as a memorial to one Marvin Ransdell at a meatpacking company in downtown Buckeye.

When he was actively fronting restaurants, Hobo Joe was marketed as "World Traveler, Philosopher, and Connoisseur of Good Food."
