Dad's bike accident in 1941

Prepare to have your mind blown! I think young Dad looks like young Steve (or vice versa). Let me know if you have any problems with this link. Seattle Times 1941.

Happy Birthday to our Grandfather, Herbert Jesse Jenks! He was born in Washington on March 27, 1900, and died December 18, 1975 in Mount Vernon, Washington. At the time of his death he was living on Lopez Island. We don't know too much about him except that he married Gladys M. Fuller (our grandmother) and Frances Geraldine Graham, and that at one time he worked for Ericson Shipbuilding in Tacoma, Washington. This picture was taken in the summer of 1975, about four months before he died when Dad, Nancy, and I took the ferry up to Lopez Island to see him.
