|My dad in his Navy Days!!|
So a note to everyone out there who is interested in family history, stories, etc... get stories and information from the relatives around you now, don't procrastinate!! You'll blink and before you know it, the time is gone, and so are they.... Happy hunting everyone!!
My dad passed away July 7, 2006 when I was 16 from lung cancer. He was a Navy SeaBEE during the Vietname war, and he was a whole case full of metals to prove it!!
He was born April 2, 1935, so he was about 54 when I was born! =)
He farmed, ranched, and worked for the National Park sericve in Chaco canyon, NM, Glen Canyon, Lake Powell, and Great Basin National Park. He FINALLY retired in 1998(?) and continued to farm and ranch, and raise me and my three sisters =) Yes, he was a very brave man!! He was burined in Cimarron, NM next to his mother and father. A lot of my family is also buried in Elizabeth Town, NM, which I also plan of visiting!
