#533...grampy

My Grampy passed away yesterday at the age of 94. He was a civil engineer, a WWII Veteran, and a bird and nature lover. He met my Nana while stationed at Pearl Harbor, (she was a navy nurse also stationed there). They had 3 sons, 3 daughters, 3 son-in-laws, 2 daughter-in-laws and 16 grandchildren. I am the oldest of the the grandchildren and I feel lucky to have had him in my life for the past 37 years. He was greatly loved and will be missed.

funny I can remember him wearing that shirt in the second picture all the time. I even think Dad had the same one.
