Birth: Jul. 22, 1911
Dauphin County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Aug. 29, 1966
Olmsted County
Minnesota, USA

"Bop" ran away from home at an early age, and joined the Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus in the mid-to-late 1920's. He was a roustabout.

When he met my Grandmother (Nannie), he quit the circus, and took a job in the tool & die industry.

A life-long smoker, he was diagnosed with lung cancer in 1964, and subsequently treated at the Mayo Clinic, where he died.

The headstone reads "If there's a Circus in Heaven, I'll find you".
