Cause of Death:Kidney Failure, after being on dialisis for several years. He also liked to hunt and fish. We used to go on grand camping trips, with them, we used to meet at Uncle George and Aunt Sadie's, and they would make all the plans, who was doing and buying what, it was great fun. He retired from the City of Flint, was a tin can man, and I remember moving them from their house on Gibson, up to E.Twas and his single car garage was full from floor to ceiling, side to side, he must have collected everything. He and Aunt Pauline were more like grandparents on Dad's side of the family, we always enjoyed being with him. He was short in height,maybe 5'5", he,and all his brothers looked alike. he was quiet and laughed and told some very good stories. He and his uncle(George Maxwell) built their house on Gibson St. and it was a nice house, and they always set at the oak table and played cards in the dinning room.Even back then they had some great old furniture, that all went to his last wife, and that was a shame. He was a good man, a another very hard worker for his family
