The Beginning of John K. Kealy

John was born in Dublin Ireland on July 29th in 1909. He was a very popular guy growing up and lots of people knew him. He had immigrated to the US in 1929, and during that year the first Academy Awards are announced. After that, He worked in Oakland CA at a Capwell store as a Home Furnishing Manager in 1936. He then got married in 1938 on July 2nd to the lovely Marjorie McQuillan. They lived a wonderful life up until John Kealy had entered the Navy on January 1st, 1942.
