Employees at the store in Nyack say the chair was favored by Fleming Taylor, a paying customer even though he was homeless.

Store assistant manager Mark Horwitz says people would give the cafe's gift cards to Taylor.

Store employees and acquaintances say Taylor's body was found Wednesday under the stairwell where he lived.

Now that purple velvet chair has been cordoned off with black ribbons and bouquets have been placed on the seat in Taylor's honor.
