He was born in 1888 and he died in 1981.

His name was Frank and I'm his great grandson.

When I was a little boy, I remember him giving some change to me.

He was a great man who almost lived to be ninety-three.

I wanted him to live to be a hundred when I was a kid.

If anybody deserved to make it to a hundred, he sure did.

When he died, he had a forty something wife.

He had a long and happy life.
