I know I promised more of a complete bio for my grandfather, but that's just going to have to wait for right now (sorry Adam). Here's the finished version which I actually did before the sketch I posted earlier. Reading through his autobiography (as far as he got at least) it makes me sorry I wasn't more interested in hearing these stories straight from him while he was alive.
From living in a haunted house in Burma (he saw a chest of drawers levitate over his younger sister), to selling clothes to the prince in a haberdashery, to sailing from Japan to San Francisco on the eve of World War II, losing his house at a trip to the race tracks, and moving to San Diego with my grandmother, mom, and aunt , you can't say he didn't lead an interesting life.
When he first met my grandmother he said "I think you're the girl I'm going to marry ."
