This is a page from my Heritage Project, Papa was my maternal grandfather and this page is in mine and my brother’s book.

Inspired by “Sand Baby” layout by MemoryKeeper http://tinyurl.com/6xv2oj

Journaling Reads:

After serving in the Navy during World War 2, Papa returned home to his wife and daughter and began building their life in the prosperity of postwar America. They built a new home in Detroit in the late 40s. He was a mechanic for Standard Oil company until his retirement in 1980. He worked to provide a comfortable life for his family, open in love and rich in the memories of time spent together.

Papa was a man ahead of his time. Where many men coming back after World War 2 resumed their old jobs and old roles as the sole income for the family, expecting a wife at home keeping house and having dinner on the table, he supported Grandma's desire to continue working and encouraged her to take the management position that was offered to her, expressing his faith in her and her ability to do the job and do it well. He was a strong man that had pride in and drew strength from his wife’s accomplishments in a time when many men would have found them intimidating.
