He was born in 1916. I'm almost positive he was born in Marquette, Michigan. He died in 1997 in Iron River or Caspian, Mi.. I believe his mother owned a bar in Tipler, Wi.. He had a wife named Ann (maiden name Bakrich) and 5 children (Cheryl, Renee, Mona [my mother], Mahree and Charles). Thank you for any info., Noah.
