Harold Clifton Fredricks Would Have Been 100 Years Old Today

My mother's brother, Harold Clifton Fredricks, was born 26 July 1913, in Manistee County, Michigan-100 years ago today.  He was the son of Daisy Ellen Graf.  He lived to be 71 years old, dying in San Diego, California.

Uncle Harold was a very nice and kind uncle.  Although, I didn't see him much, I do remember the times he visited us in Harbor Beach or came to the family reunion.  He shared stories of growing up.  I wished I had asked a few more questions.

In honor of what would have been his 100th birthday, a photo tribute is below.
