They were married on Mar 1, 1918(on his birthday), just prior to his leaving for the Army. He was Army Air Corps; airplane Mechanic. They were together at Eberto Field and Dayton AFB.

After his discharge they returned to Columbus and he joined his dad Hank in an auto repair business, The American Garage. He was a mechanic that could fix anything!

He lived in Columbus his whole live. To his grand~kids he was "Bunko". He was a big gentle man with kind blue eyes. A stroke robbed his speech for the last few years of his life, but not his kindness.
