He hawked newspapers for the Chicago Tribune as a young boy, started Chicago's first "Super" market, flew transport aircraft in the Army Air Corps during World War II, was a vice president of Fuller Brush, owned real estate firms, cafés, restaurants, a supper club, ice cream shop, horse ranch and others we may never know of. One of his favorite sayings was, "But I never made bricks!"
In keeping with his wishes, there will not be a funeral or memorial service. His remains will be interred at the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell.
Archer is survived by his wife, Patricia, in Homosassa; his daughter, Maren Cox of Tallahassee; and his granddaughter Erin Hunt and great-grandchildren Adam Hunt and Morgan Hunt of Omaha, Neb.
