Grandaddy was the son of Harry and Carrie Wynkoop Allen and the third husband of my great-grandmother Gladys (Coulter) Snoots Walker ("Gang"). He was step-father of Lawrence Snoots, step-grandfather of Lawrence and Barry Snoots and Carrie Browning, and step-greatgrandfather of Jennifer, Jessica and David Snoots, and Barry and Krystin Browning. He was the only grandfather and great-grandfather we all ever knew. He was also survived by his sister, June Kinna.
Grandaddy was a U.S. Army veteran of World War II and worked for a long time at the Philadelphia Quartz Company in Baltimore, from which he retired in 1969.
Growing up I remember Grandaddy sitting in his easy-chair watching tv. He didn't go out much because his health wasn't very good.
Two Grandaddy memories:
When I was really little, everyone was helping Gang and Grandaddy paint, and I wanted to paint too. So Grandaddy told me I could paint the garage. He got me a bucket and a brush and put me to work. I never noticed that all I was brushing onto the garage was water!
Another time, my family was visiting them. It was summer. Gang and Grandaddy were sitting in their easy-chairs, watching tv. The front door was open and suddenly some gals in bathing suits go walking past. Grandaddy leaned way forward in his chair, enjoying the view, but he got busted by Gang, who started yelling at him! Gang was not amused, but we sure were!
