Note: My Father was a sheet metal worker for over 40 years. His biggest love was the shore. Every summer my mother and I would live on his boat, only
going home for a couple days. He would commute back and forth to work.
He never really talked to much of his childhood,but there are a few
things I do Know from either him or his brother ( Uncle Wilbur ). His
summers as a child were spent in surf City, in a bugalow that his family
shared. Uncle Wilbur said one of his favorite past times was sinking row
boats. Dad of course denided that. He was not raised at home by his
parents, his aunt Susie raised him. Uncle Wilbur was raised by Aunt
Susies neighbor so the two of them were close as boys. The Yardville VFW
was one of his pasttimes as well as the Coast guard Ax. He held many
different offices. He was in the Navy during WW11 stationed in Hawaii. He
loved to sing and had a beautiful voice. He said he when he was stationed
there Joe Demagio and other famous ball players were also. they would
playball all day. He Has pictures of himself and others of some Actress
not sure who she is. Saint Patricks Day was his favorite holiday. He
would get up and listen to all the old Irish songs and sing along with
them. I know now that he has passed, if I want to be close to him all I
have to do is go Down the shore. That is what he lived for.
My Father always told me he was Irish with a little bit of Pennsyvania
Dutch. I guess he didnt like the English, even though his own Mother was
mostly English. He just loved being Catholic Irish. He was an Alter boy.
He is buried at the Greenwood Cemetary. Also was hard of hearing in right
ear and had Glucoma.
He had blue eyes and sandy light brown hair,which he got from his father.
