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.
