Birth: Dec. 26, 1909
Georgia, USA
Death: Apr. 2, 1986
Texas, USA

KNOWN AS APPLE OR GRANDPA. HE WAS A DEPUTY SHERIFF, AND MERCHANT MARINE DURING WWII. HE WAS MARRIED OVER 50 YEARS TO SADIE PEARL HANDLEY. HE WAS A VERY STRICT MAN, BUT HE WAS FROM THE OLD SCHOOL. HE DIED OF PERITONITIS.
I REMEMBER HE USE TO BUY MY GRANDMA BABY RUTH AND DR PEPPER. HE LIKED BANANA NUT ICE CREAM, AND HE LIKED CHEWING TOBACCO, MAYBE THAT IS WHAT HURT HIS STOMACH. ANYWAY HE WAS GRANDPA, AND WHEN I WAS LEFT ALONE HE PICKED ME UP ONE RAINY NIGHT AND TOOK ME TO HIS AND GRANDMAS HOUSE. THEY WERE SPECIAL.
