Dad would have been 92 today.

He was a sailor at heart running away from home at 14 to join the Navy in San Fransisco. His parents found him, brought him home to Aberdeen WA hoping he'd stay. But he didn't stay home for long. He dropped out of school after the 8th grade, got a job on the Blackball Ferry line out of Seattle as a deck hand and never looked back.

He was a Merchant Marine and was in Japan when I and my twin brother were born. He was gone a lot during my childhood, but was the best when he was home.

He finally earned his unlimited Captain's license at the age of 64, but two years later he was diagnosed with colon cancer and was dead 5 months later.

RIP Dad!
