On this date over a century ago, April 1, 1909, my father, Gerald Joseph Desmond, was born in Chicago, IL. And that’s no April Fool’s joke!
Happy Birthday, Dad!
It seems the apple doesn’t fall far from the (family) tree either as you compare the photo of him in his old age (above) to the photos of his own father, Owen E. Desmond (below) taken in the early 1940s at about the same age.
Hmmm..I wonder what my brothers will look like in a decade or two?!
