KNOX — Before he flew on missions around the world and lived in Denmark, Michael Morey worked as a teenage pump hand one summer at Margaret “Si” Stevens’s Mobil gas station that developed a reputation for its resistance to modernization.

Morey, 52, wants to re-open the property as a general store and, eventually, a gas station, similar to how Stevens ran the business. He plans to call it, “Knox Variety Store and Gas,” and to live at the store as Stevens had.
