Original Memory Interview Question

How did your parents meet? What was their life like when you were first born? Do you remember certain things about them at a very early age?


His Response:

I have been given different versions of the meeting of my parents but I do know that my Mother was a widow at the time with a small family of at least 4 children. They married in New Brunswick where they met and moved to Ontario just before my brother was born in 1950.

Original Memory Interview Question

What types of family traditions did you experience at a very early age?


His Response:

We had a tradition of monthly family gatherings hosted at different relatives houses each month unless it was a month that also held a major holiday like Christmas or Easter and in that case it was usually held by my grandmother at her home. We were a very matriarchal family run by the female members of the family like my Grandmother, or an Aunt, or my Mother.

Original Memory Interview Question

How do you think your life growing up was different than what goes on today in a child's life?


His Response:

Children today are 'spoiled brats' direct quote from my Mother.

Well I would say this much, there are some kids who have been given everything and had to earn nothing and that is why they do not like it when they find out to make a living as an Adult they have to actually work. As a child I was given a small allowance from my Dad but as I got older I had to do chores or I didn't get the allowance at all. As I got older I started working part time after school to make extra money to help out the family as my father had lost his job and we were not poor but we were struggling to keep the bills paid monthly. Every time I was given my allowance I was told I had to give back some to my favorite charity and some to the church poor box ans some I had to save then the rest I could spend. Kids today do not get that same sense of responsibility as we did because they are given too many options for everything it is a 'Multiple Choice' life for them we were given less choices.

From (Early Life)
Original Memory Interview Question

What growing up "firsts" did your parents tell you about? Was there some kind of story surrounding your first time you walked or first time you said "mom" and "dad"?


His Response:

I was a large baby that is a L-O-N-G one 22 1/2 in. long at birth so when I did start to walk some people thought I was well passed the age that I should have been to start walking. My Mother had to explain to them that I was not really that old at the time and they were amazed at my size. As for speaking it was a day when we were to go to see Gran and my Mother was making ready my stroller for the trip when all of a sudden she heard this little voice say " walk off now" and she turned to see me smiling at her and there was nobody else in the room at the time. It seemed I had gotten the saying from my Dad since he had been in the Army and had also coached sports it was one of his favorite expressions to say "Walk it off now" whenever somebody complained of any injuries or discomfiture.
