MARRIED: OPAL ILETA HALBERT JUNE 20, 1945
My dad had the darkest red hair! He served in the U.S. Navy during World War II as a gunners mate First Class.
He was on numerous battleships. One of which was the USS Indianopolis. He was in Hawaii just before Pearl Harbor was bombed. His ship pulled out two days before the strike.

He was greatly talented. He could make almost anything. He had a green thumb! He really knew how to grow things. He loved to fish and hunt. He grew his own garden, and
my mom cooked and canned everything from it.
