He was born on April 22, 1914. He didn’t come close to making it to 100. He died on January 15, 1981, a few months short of his 67th birthday.
I did a Father’s Day essay about him in 2009 and followed up the next year with a Father’s Day photo essay. As I mentioned in the written essay, he missed out on a lot. But happily, he did not miss out on being a grandfather and was alive until Jen was nine-and-a-half.
Dad, Michael, and Jen (Circa Mid-1970’s)
