My grandfather was born in 1923: He served in World War II and fought in the Korean War.

My sisters and I have fond memories of our papa growing up . He would tell us the best stories. They sometimes would keep us up all night laughing. Our papa was diagnosed with lung cancer in the mid 1980's- he was an avid smoker, like most in the early years . We lost our papa in 1990; it was a hard battle for him and my family. I was young as well as my sisters .  He never had a chance to see us graduate from high school or college or meet his five great grand children. Cancer has a bad habit of taking the ones you love. We love and miss you papa! -David K. Stearns
