My Grandpa and His Life

My Grandpa Jim’s Story


By: Delaney


My grandpa was a very courageous man. Thats why I decided to tell you about him and his life!
He was born on May 31 1946. He has two brothers my two great uncles Uncle Randy and Uncle Greg. They played good together most of the time but like all brothers they fought.
When my grandpa was in Kanawha High School he played a lot of sports. He played basketball, football, and track. He was awesome in track. His long legs were strong so he could run really fast no really really fast!
Then when he got out of high school he was in the pit stop crew for race cars! He had to change the tires quickly and put new gas in it. I think that would be pretty cool! What about you?
Then after that he was in the Kanawha Fire Dept. He fought those fires for ten years. He probably saved a lot of lives! Then he got married to my grandma Janet. He got a different job as a mechanic he ran that business successfully for 17 years. He was great at his job. That was my grandpa’s childhood and early adult life.
Now I am going to tell you a short story of his later adult life. After a while he got a divorce with my grandma. But a while after that he got diagnosed with brain cancer and died a couple years later with a brain tumor. It was sad but we are glad he is in a good safe place now!
Like I said my grandpa is and was courageous. He was proud of all his accomplishments and his life. That is my grandpa’s life! I hope you loved it!
