Birth: May 11, 1916
Wisconsin, USA
Death: Mar. 8, 1960
San Diego
San Diego County
California, USA

Fred Earl Birch was my Dad's oldest brother. He was born to Fred and Dovvie Birch, and was the second oldest of 9 children. I was 4, going on 5 when he passed away,so I don't remember a lot about him. Just that he looked like my Daddy, and always had those candies called orange slices in his pockets for us kids!

He was in the Calvary before WW2, and after the war began, he was in the infantry in the U.S.Army. While serving in China, Uncle Fred had a heart attack and was sent home. He was still only in his late twenties. He continued to have heart problems, and was told he should move to a warmer climate. He and his family moved to San Diego, California. Shortly after, he had a massive heart attack and died, at 43 years old.

Uncle Fred was preceded in death by his mother Dovvie, in 1947, his youngest brother Arthur, in 1955, and his grandparents. He left behind his wife, Mary, 3 daughters, one son, 5 grandchildren (12 more would follow after his death), his father Fred, 3 sisters, and 4 brothers. And many nieces and nephews who loved him very much!
