My Great-Grandpa

How we are related

She is on my dad's side of the family. She is the father of my dad's mom. But, unfortunately, my dad's mom died when my dad was 15. Luckily, my dad's mom's family is still supportive for the family.

Life

He was born on February 11, 1921 (age 94). He has served in the army of the soviet union of World War II. He did not go to college because of this. He flew the aircrafts in the war. He was raised in the city of Cleveland, Ohio. He met his wife, Mary, who also served in World War II, but unknown what she did. He then got a job, being an air traffic controller for Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization, or PATCO. He really enjoyed the job, at the Cleveland Airport. In 1981, Ronald Reagan fired 11,234 air traffic controllers, including him, for going on strike and refusing to get back to work. This also got PATCO to discontinue. He also had a child named, Bill, and another one, my dad's mom (name unknown because she died when my dad was 15). They both decided to stay in Cleveland, OH. When he started to have grandchildren, he loved to spend time with them. Same thing goes with grandchildren. Today, He loves to spend time with his family, especially at his son, Bill's house. Me and him think that family is really important to us, and we really need to spend time with him. Fortunately, he is still living today. It is pretty rare that great-grandparents are living while their great-grandchildren are teens. Also, PATCO was reformed in 1996 after a 15-year hiatus.
