Born and raised in the small town of Beardsley, Minnesota, he set out to accomplish great things. Even though he is 92 years old, he remembers everyday of his life as if it were yesterday. He shared his story with me, and I hope that I can share it with you.
I am an eighth grader at Sartell Middle School. My favorite subject is history, because the people are human, just like us. It's the stories and what they lived through, that makes it remarkable. One of my favorite sports is basketball, just like my grandpa. He is a loyal fan to the Timberwolves, while I enjoy watching the Boston Celtics. I am blessed to have such wonderful family and friends. I don't know what I would do without them.
