His profile says he was born in the 1930s. His son was born in the 1940s. That is a whole ten year difference or less.

The profiles are showing decades for privacy reasons. If he was born in 1930 it is quite feasible that he could have a son born in the late 1940s.

Howard, If you read the biography section it says that the father was born in 1930 and the sons profile says he was born in 1949 making hes father 19 years old and not ten. As Lynda states the data section of the profiles only give the decade due to privacy settings and that is why we need to read everything that we can see in the profiel before making assumptions.
