March 1985 Sarasota Florida
Harry E. Voise born 1928 and Harold R. Voise born 1908
There was a 20 year age difference in these brothers. Harold wanted my father to fly but he wanted to be home and care for his mother and a sister back in Saginaw. My father would marry and have 4 children. He worked for Consumers Power for 35 years. I recall him being very fit and athletic and  doing summer summersaults on the beach. Me? I ran track and field and placed fourth in the Michigan state meet in 1971 running a 2 mile in 9:37.  I am currently a long distance swimmer on our lake in Gladwin Michigan.
