Charles b Feb 4, 1925
This is Anna’s uncle Charles. Yesterday he celebrated his 82nd birthday.
When he was a teenager in Marietta, probably about when this picture was taken, many times he would ride his bike to Atlanta to watch the planes fly and take off.
In WWII in he went to various aviation and navigation schools and became a pilot. Afterward the war he was a pilot for TWA. He and his family lived in Kansas City. After he retired and his three daughters went in their various directions he and his wife moved back to Marietta.
He still looks much like the picture above - the award for eating lightly and healthy.
