Today would have been my Dad's 84th birthday. Donald Joseph Sherlock was born on 2 Mar 1929 in Chicago, Illinois. Here he is in a photo with his two older brothers. Donald is the cute one to the far left. In the middle is his brother Edmund (known as Eddie) and on the right Charles (who always went by the name Chuck since his dad was also named Charles).
They were very close siblings -- living most of their life in the same town. They raised their families in the same town (Van Nuys, California) sending their children at times to the same elementary and high school. Only when they were much older did two of them move away -- Eddie to Vista (in San Diego County) and Chuck to Ventura (near the beach north of Los Angeles). Donald lived in the same house in Van Nuys that he bought 6 months prior to my birth in 1955 until his death in 2001.
Happy Birthday, Dad! We miss you and love you!
