    • was born with flu five days after his sister Bertha had died of it. He was undersized and weight from birth and for a long time not expected to live. But he did and he remained small and thin and they said he looked like a mosquito hence he became known as "skeeter"

      Although he started in the hayfields at age 8, Skeeter's diminutive size may have contributed to his being allowed to complete 8 years of school before being kept busy doing farm work for his dad or brother Lewis. His exceptional mechanical aptitude led him into automobile repair and in turn to moving northwood towards better pay. He was working in an auto repair shop just north of Minneapolis in December 1941 and by April 1942 he was in the Army Air Corp. He spent the rest of WW2 in the southwest pacific assembling fighter planes that were shipped there in pieces

      After the war, Skeeter returned to north of Minneapolis, built his own home in a grove on a piece of land with a small lake or large pond. His civilian life was spent as a welder in a factory, for those things and places automated welders cant do.

      The price of Skeeters life work was damaged lungs. His emphasema has for a number of years required the almost constant companionship of an oxygen bottle which has slowed his activities but neither his sense of humour or good nature.
