A Halloween Birthday

Halloween is a birthday for two people in my family.  My second oldest cousin was born about two decades ago… give or take.  But I am not going to talk about him… 

My great-grandpa David Charles Smith was born on October 31, 1919 in Bellingham, Whatcom, Washington, USA.   He is the second youngest child of Eudell Revere Smith (21 Dec 1875 - 12 Oct 1951) and Mary Blanche Morton (10 May 1885 - 3 Nov 1980.)  He passed away on December 15, 1996.

Daddy spent a lot of time at Great-Grandpa Smith’s house while he was growing up.  During his Junior High and High School years.  They had a computer at their house and one of the things that dad used to do to spend his time was play on the computer.  While it was in the 80’s the technology was not even close to what it is today and the only game they had was a typing program.  Needless to say, it taught him the basics.  

Great Grandpa worked for Kaiser Aluminum in the 1970’s and 1980’s.  One of the things he used to do was inspect the different railroad yards for the company.  

I will talk more about him later…
