This is a long shot, but if your father came from Orange County California, I have some history on that line of Radditz. My grandmother, on my fathers side was a Radditz. She had a brother, Emil H. Radditz(wife Ida) who moved to California from Missouri most likely in the 50`s. He had a son by the name of John, also another son & daughter, Mary & charles. I seen John once when he and his father attended his grandfathers funeral here in Mo.He was a young man,I believe I heard he later married, with a couple children,believe he may have divorced.Heard no more that I remember. I do remember he was as a young man in the late 1960`s or early 70`s a slim guy, cocky, dark combed back hair. Wore sun glasses threw the service, did not see his eyes. P.S. If you think this could be the family I have a bit more. I will say, the family came here from Stettin, Germany. I suspect the entire Rattatz clan came from Germany.
