Handy’s father, Marcel, turns 98 today. We celebrated his birthday yesterday; five of Handy’s six siblings were there. (His youngest brother lives in California and couldn’t make it.)
Marcel was born just after the first world war ended, he joined the army in 1943, and landed at Omaha beach two days after the initial assault.
He got home from Europe on November 12, 1945 and got married 12 days later. The rest? Family history.
Many happy returns of the day, Marcel!
