Uncle Denver did serve in WW I, in the Navy. I would like to find more information of his military service.
On Dec 24, 1922 he married Juanita Davis in Noble, Cleveland County, Oklahoma. Shortly after they moved to El Centro, California. Around 1923 or 1924, they moved up to Maywood, near Los Angeles as two daughters were born in Los Angeles. Juana Jean, in 1924 and Betty Louise in 1926.
He and Juanita were divorced around 1936. He remarried sometime in the late 1940's to Doris Eddy and later divorced her. I did know Doris and loved to go into her resale shop. As a little girl and going into that shop was so much fun, just seeing all those old clothes and jewelry, I got to dream how fun it would be to play dress-up. Uncle Denver was at most of our family gatherings when I was a child, when he and Uncle Ted got together, there was so much laughter. Uncle Denver is a person you just loved as he was so much fun to be around. He was shy, soft spoken, and we all loved him. He passed on April 12, 1977.
|This is how I remember Uncle Denver, always happy.|
