He was stationed in Korea during the Korean War. Thankfully he never saw any action there, but was instead stationed as a lineman installing telephone polls.

He told the story of walking down the street one day when he encounters his older brother Kenneth Riley. Kenneth was not even aware that his younger brother had joined the service.

His birth records contained a typographical error. I remember my parents having to straighten his birth certificate name vs his real name. It was never Gerald.

He also lied about his real age when he was 16 and wanted to join the army. He gave the Army his mother's birth month and the year he was born. which increased his age by 6 months. He chose her birthday so he wouldn't forget. He spent several weeks or months straightening out his real birthday by the time he retired from his employment.

Sadly he retired from Sears in June of 1991 and was diagnosed with liver cancer in August of 1991. He passed away less than six months later.
