John Quincy O'Brien
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 13, 1911
Death: Jun. 30, 1966

This came from the Autobiography of William Earl O'Brien, my father-in-law.

My father, like my mother, did not really have a childhood, and almost came into the world working.
Because of this he had an unquenchable thirst for
toys, especially battery operated mechanical toys,
and comic books. He kept stacks of comic books
that was higher than I was tall. He bought all of each
he could find, particularly toys that were different.
He played the guitar and often walked for miles to
neighboring houses "courting" and playing the guitar for them.

He was the foreman at the Bogalusa Iron Foundry.

Cause of death:

At New Orleans they found his blood badly
contaminated with urine and they immediately
began cleaning it up. His lungs were as black
as smut with foundry dust. In addition to
cleaning his blood of urine they attempted
to wash out his lungs. The process was too much for him.
During the night he had a stroke and died.
