This would have been my Dad’s 108th Birthday. He passed away in 1982 at the young age of 67. Although that seems young to head across the rainbow bridge, Dad had a full life, having served in the Second World War, married to my mom in 1938 and had four children which gave him great pride. After his Naval Career, he became a power systems engineer for a California-based Telephone Company.
“Jack,” as he was known, loved his family, was a good Christian and voted Republican. I wish he could have been with us longer, but the medical procedures and medicine weren’t as available to him as they now are at this stage in our lifetimes.
We miss him. Happy Heavenly Birthday, Dad!
