My dad told us the story of having an alligator when he was younger and keeping it in the bathtub. That is until the day PopPop went to take a bath not knowing the gator was there. In short Dad was told the gator had to go and he gave it to the Philadelphia Zoo[1]. You know we all hear the stories and wonder if they are true or embellished to entertain us.

Obituary
Nov 20, 2006.

He like his father was baptized at St Davids in Manayunk[1] on December 24, 1933. His Uncle Harry W Herion and wife Ruth Alma Miller are his Godparents, Ruth is his mothers sister.

My dad worked in his fathers business Clarks repairing Washing machines and appliances. 4307 Main St Manayunk[2]

I remember going to the Arena in Philly where my dad worked at night setting up and breaking down the track for the Roller Games for the Philadelphia Warriors. He also skated.

He also worked also for Midvale Steel in Nicetown[3]. And was an electrician like his father and worked at Norristown State Hospital[4] until his retirement.

Our parents divorced when I was about 11 or 12. My dad got custody of myself, John, Joe and Barbara.

With the help of Family he raised us. My mother had custody of our eldest sister Rose.

Around 1976 he went to Penn State.

Dad was 73 when he went on ahead [2], at his wishes he was cremated and now is in his youngest daughter Barbara' possession. Our brother Joe set up a memorial for him [3]
