Apparently he had a long and prosperous life. And was a prominent man in the community. I’m looking for more pictures of the business in the family pictures, but while I found a bunch of interesting 1920’s stuff, pictures of the family business can’t be found. Here’s a picture of the man himself.
Apparently the lumberyard closed in 1965, but I remember seeing the family business in 1974, on trip out west. Well that’s a subject for more investigation and digging. It’s always good to know where you come from.
Turning and turning in the widening gyre | The falcon cannot hear the falconer | Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold | Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world | The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere | The ceremony of innocence is drowned | The best lack all conviction, while the worst | Are full of passionate intensity. -- W.B. Yeats, The Second Coming
