Born at the home of my Grandparents located in Deckers Hollow, Tyrone, Pa. Then returning to my parents home in Birmingham, PA just a mile from our first home that was located some distance from the village. You may find it interesting to learn that our first home was a log cabin with the bedroom/living room and the kitchen in the other room. The man that owned the cabin had to move because of his job and my dad rented the home for $5.00 a month. (yes 5 dollars)… Dad moved us to a small home next to my grandparents back in Decker Hollow. My early years was filled with sickness, you name it I had it.|
Then in 1955 my dad moved us to South Lyon, MI where he worked for and retired from the City.
Served with the USMC Stationed at Camp Pendleton Calif as a horse handler for a Korean mare by the name of Reckless fame for caring ammo on the front line duing the Korean war,
I then trained in San Diageo as a photographer then left the Reg.HQ 5th Marines and became part of India Company 3rd bat. 9th Marines 3rd Marine Div.and traveled all over South East Asia - Thailand. When I returned to the states I found work with the General Motors Proving Ground - Milford, Michigan as a Test Driver.
Over the years I worked with Police and Sheriff Departments as a Police Lt. CSI Forensic Photographer and later as an Ultrasonic Operator.
Cherished memories will never fade, because one loved is gone. Those we love can never be, more than a thought apart, for as long as there is a memory, they live with in our heart.
