Claude severed in the US Navy during World War II.

Story told by his sister, my grandmother Alice Lott Quinley: Claude came in one night from drinking, and told his mother, Grandma Georgia Lott, to wake him up early the next morning, that he didn't care what she had to do to get him awake. The next morning came and Grandma couldn't get him up. Granny Grunt (Alice Lott Quinley) was still living at home and she told her mother, "Mama, stand back! I'll get him up!" Granny Grunt then poured water on his face. Uncle Claude jumped up out of the bed and started chasing after Grunt, all the way outdoors, down the road in his underwear!"

I remember Uncle Claude as being somewhat of a prankster. He would come down from Indiana and stay with Granny Grunt and Paw Paw (Alice Lott and David Quinley). One time when I was little and Uncle Claude was visiting Paw Paw told me, "Boy Boy, Uncle Claude hasn't had a good foot stompin' in a long time. Go over there and stomp his feet!"
