At the time of Don and Sherry's marriage the Vietnam War was raging. Don Wray was born at home at 525 Court Street, Troy, Ohio, now the Hobart parking lot area. He lived at 514 Summit Avenue, Troy, until marriage. He is 5'11', medium completion, hazel eyes, dark hair. He is deeply committed to his family, fair minded and strong willed. He has a wonderful sense of humor. An avid golfer, winning many tournaments, including the Troy Junior City Championship. He was scoutmaster of Troop 5, First United Church of Christ, for a number of years, the troop he belonged to as a young boy. He loves outdoor activities: camping, boating & hiking. Don set pins at Troy Bowl starting in 1954 and continued for 4 years during winter and was a caddy in the summers at Troy County Club. He made 15 cents per line, per bowler, or about $4.50 for a league setting doubles. He set pins at 6pm and again at 8:30pm. Don began to caddy at the Troy Country Club at the age of 11. He would walk down the hill to Ridge Avenue and hitch a ride to TCC and following a long day, hitch a ride back home. He caddied for $5.00 a bag, and carried two bags to make good money. He credits the contacts he made with getting him good jobs during college and after. He first bought a Wizard motor bike in 1956 for $85.00 and sold it in 1957 for $65.00 and bought a new 1957 Simplex Motor bike for $300. When Don went to college his dad took over the Simplex.

All three children were born when we lived at 1180 Greenfield Drive. When we ask Goldie who Don was named for she had this to tell: 'I just liked the name Donald, however, I named him Eugene after Eugene Adam's, moms brother, who was an alcoholic and hung himself. The family was mad at me for naming him that.' Don, John Jr., and Mary inherited back and knee problems from their parents.

TIMELINE: Born when the President was Franklin D. Roosevelt - WWII Sherry Passon Wray - 5'8', green eyes and brown hair (well it used to be brown and I used to be 5'9' and skinny) I'm the person who did this genealogical research with much help and $upport from my husband. My middle name came from the song Lili Marlene-guess it could have been LILI Mother just liked the name Sherry. We lived in Fort Jefferson, Ohio when I was born, across the street from Ft. Jefferson Park. From there we moved to Richmond, (Outside San Francisco) California to be near dad at the Vallejo shipping yards, in the US Navy. Came home to Greenville, Ohio in 1945. We lived for a while with Grandpa Julius Diedrich at 725 East Third Street, Greenville. Dad decided he wanted to live in California and was preparing to move us there again. At Aunt Wanetta Wissinger's suggestion, dad bought land on the Light Plant lane near them in West Milton, Ohio. We lived above their garage and built the house up the lane, forgetting about moving to California. It was always said that the kids built the house and dad supervised. He was best at that, never really finishing what he started. We lived there for about 4 years and NEVER had indoor plumbing. There was a pump out back for water (great sulfur water) and an outhouse complete with a bathtub we never used. He used a pepsi drum for the toilet and added a toilet seat to the top. Dad worked for Inland Manufacturing in Dayton as a welder, a division of General Motors, and mom got a job at A.O. Smith in Tipp City for 8 years, winding staters ( putting the copper wire in the motors). We moved to 441 West Plum Street (yeah, indoor plumbing), Tipp City about 1955. Mom worked at A..O. Smith during the day and went to Richard Weston Beauty School at night until she got her beautician license. Then she opened the Lovely Lady Beauty Salon in our house. Gene Laycock came up with the name and everyone liked it. She was very successful and everyone loved her. If her customer couldn't come to her, she would go to their home, to do their hair. It was a lifelong friendship with these women. She would go to the funeral home and do their hair when they died. My greatest accomplishment in life was marrying a wonderful guy and having great children. Tina was born on Friday, David on Monday, Lance on Wednesday. The kids have made us very proud parents. And the grandchildren....you don't even want to get me started The youngest of four, always interested and curious about the family roots. My mother, Corky Wood Passon Ward, actually started looking into the family history when she located her Uncle Walter Wood and corresponded with Aunt Sude Wood Berry and Uncle Sanford Wood. Mom saved every newspaper clipping that had family in it and that was of tremendous help when putting some of the history together. In 1978 Don and I began in earnest to find out all we could, writing and traveling wherever was needed. We certainly did find skeletons along with everything else in those closets. It is very difficult to sort through what is fact and what is fiction where the family oral histories are concerned. We have tried to prove whatever we could and some memories are just that. We always welcome corrections and additions to the work. No matter how careful you are, mistakes can happen. Another lesson learned is that people see things VERY differently This work is written from my prospective as well as those persons who were interviewed. We hope you enjoy reading what we have compiled and add your own stories/memories to it.

Mark and Tina live in Mariemont, Ohio - east of Cincinnati.

      Lance is a big guy, 6'4' and 240# dark blonde hair and hazel eyes. He looks like his mothers side of the family. Don liked the name Lance and I liked Derrick. For about the first three years I called him Derrick and Don called him Lance and one day he said 'my name is Lance, my name is not Derrick'. Now in 1997 he likes the name Derrick and goes by that a lot He has a high IQ. Prior to going to kindergarten he could read very well. He was identified for the 'gifted program' where they were challenged. Lance joined the US Navy during his junior year of high school going weekends to their program and following his high school graduation he went to boot camp in Florida, then to Great Lakes Naval Training Center, Michigan for education and to Norfolk, Va. where he was assigned to the USS CARON. He specialized in electronics and later computer network management. The USS CARON is a destroyer. Lance went to many countries on this ship. He was in Italy, Vatican City, Spain, Columbia, Puerto Rico, Curacao, Azores, Novia-Scotia, Denmark, France, Monaco, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Russia, England, Norway, Haiti, Trinadad and Tobago. Most of the time they had a few days to explore the areas and see the sights. Lance is a certified diver so he took a few opportunities to dive when it was possible. He had an audience with the Pope twice and had the 'family' blessed, while the sentiment is nice, we are not Catholic, except for Cora. He visited the pyramids of Egypt, guarded supply ships bringing the first food drop into Bosnia- Herzegovina, the first ship to arrive in Haiti during a major uprising and shot tomahawk missiles into Iraq from the Red Sea. He has a video of the missile launches and great stories, and I have a video of what those tomahawk missiles did in Iraq, eleven hitting their target, blowing up an ammunitions building, and one going off course, hitting a major hotel and killing one person, putting it in prospective. He seemed to love all of the excitement, his mother (ME) was a nervous wreck when I knew where he was and what he was probably doing A destroyer is first to arrive wherever the problem is in the world. Lance and Christy made their home in Virginia Beach, Virginia. In late 1998, Lance left the Navy and went into Computer Network Administration in Cincinnati. It was nice to have them closer to home but they miss living near the ocean and warm weather.

While traveling in England some things that stick out in Marks memory are a visit with Uncle Ted, actually a cousin to Marks mother and the son of Edward Harper ( a famous soccer player in England). They went to a weekend/ summer home in Meriwirth, England, a house with a small pond, sheep in the field, and out back stood a windmill that ground flour. Mark and Uncle Ted took a walk along the road and he saw his first Shrew (a small rodent). Uncle Ted had a main house in London. Mark and sister Claire, both are British subjects (1997). Marks mother says both Claire and Mark are procrastinators a trait they did not get from her. Mark was born on a Friday, ll:58 P.M. at 9 lbs. even. How Mark and Tina met: Both were students at University of Cincinnati. He was in Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity and she Chi Omega Sorority. One day he looked out a window and saw Tina walking with a girlfriend and told his friend he wanted to meet that girl. Just a short time later one of his fraternity brothers ask him if he would help Tina with a computer class. After several ' helps', he ask her out. They were poor college students so he borrowed a car and they drove around the city. Later when Mark ask Tina to marry him, they went back to one of those places they had been on their first date, where he proposed ( it was on a hill in Kentucky, overlooking the Cincinnati skyline and the Ohio River). Mark is a computer software engineer. He designs and writes programs for computers. He is very active in the Disc Golf Professional Association. Mark has won numerous tournaments and has traveled extensively.

Interview with Cora Wood Passon Ward in 1997 of her early memories: When we lived in Weaver's Station, west of Ft. Jefferson, I started school in first grade. Mom packed our sack lunch and I would eat it during school time, and when lunchtime came I didn't have anything to eat. I held up my hand to go to the bathroom and the teacher told me I should have gone at recess. I wouldn't go to the outhouse during recess because the older boys said they would cut our ears off, so I wet my pants. Grandma Emma Arnold Wood Johnson saw me coming home that day waddling because my pants were wet and it was always a joke about me wetting my pants at school on the first day. We went to a school program in the evening and as kids we were scared because the Ku Klux Klan was burning a big cross in the field across from our school. I always thought my dad belonged to the KKK. He came down from upstairs one night wearing a sheet. Later on, the KKK came to our house and brought us a lot of food. Wanetta was so scared she hid under the bed. I was 5 then. We lived between Ft. Jefferson and Weavers Station along a creek. We had a board across the creek, and after a heavy rain, the water was up real high, Avo fell into the water. She was just a tot. Robert ran along beside the creek after her. It carried her quite a little ways before he was able to pull her out. We moved into a house owned by American Aggregate, next to the railroad track. We lived there a long time. This is the house where the brakes went out on our old touring car. Mother (Marguerite) was returning from town with groceries and a car load of kids. On the hill approaching the house, the brakes failed and she had to hit the corner of the house to stop the car. Mom cried 'I almost killed my family'. Dad got the brakes fixed. There was a water tower for the railroad and the other kids would climb it and go in and swim. I was too afraid so I was the look out for them. I climbed the tower and watched for trains. I was the biggest coward of the kids. They were more adventuresome and they could all swim like fish. At that time, Wayne Lakes was nothing but gravel pits everywhere. We would play on the RUBBER ICE, and it would crack as we walked on it. Robert would test it and tell us it was okay. The gravel pits were our play ground. There was an area with a sand hill and a metal building not far away. The building was open and we got some sticks from the building and threw them into the water. Later a man came to our house and told our folks that we had gotten into the building and had thrown DYNAMITE sticks into the water. We had no idea what they were. We were always picking blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, and dewberries and we would eat them and stay out most of the day playing. We ran all over the gravel pits. Grandmother Emma and my mother would gather buckets of the berries and can them. They also cut dandelions and put them into the washing machine to clean and then cold pack them into gallon jars. At school during Christmas, Santa Claus would bring gifts to the children. These gifts were actually provided by parents. Many of the children got dolls and other nice gifts and I didn't get anything. This caused me to dislike Santa Claus and to this day I don't like Christmas time except the religious part. Our family was very poor. One Christmas we received a large box of gifts from an organization and as we pulled out the presents there was only one doll in the box and there were 6 of us girls. We pulled and fought until the doll was in pieces and no one got her. My dad got mom a washing machine that was gas run. Mom broke her arm trying to start the machine. Mary was trying to put clothes into the wringer and her arm got caught up to the elbow. Mary also got her arm scalded. That was my fault. I poured hot coffee from the pot into the cap of an aluminum thermos and Mary picked in up and spilled it on her arm. She still has scars from it. Mom and dad had a card party for the neighbors, Uncle Bud was there and us kids were in the other room. We had a pot belly stove and I was trying to get the fire started. It was full of smoldering coal and I put kerosene in and started to strike a match. The stove exploded and burned my hands and arms and ruined my new gingham dress. Mom and dad rushed me into Dr. Sarvers house in Greenville and he took care of me. I remember my Aunt Winifred came to the house and brought me a sack of candy. That was quite a treat then. When I was 12 years old, I ran off to Fryes Corner where my Grandma Cora Belle lived and I ended up staying for three years with her. I went to school there and my teacher was Mrs. Myrtle Bryson. Bryson's never had any children, but she liked me and even loaned me her warm winter coat. Through her I got a job at prosecutor Hugh Staleys house, taking care of their three girls, and cleaning house. Grandma Cora Belle lived in Woodington. She used her share of the money from Edwards estate to purchase her property. I often went there on the weekends with Aunt Winifred. One weekend in particular, I was about 14, Aunt Winifred brought me back to Greenville and dropped me off on the public square and she went on to work. I walked past the James Hotel and 'Red' Passon was standing on the steps with his hand on his hip and said to me' Are you going to the fair?' and I answered 'probably'. He told me he might see me there. I looked for him at the fairgrounds but never saw him. Much later, Aunt Winifred and I went to the movies and Red was sitting across the isle from us. I decided to stay for the movie again and Aunt Winifred got up and left to go to work. Red moved over and sat beside me and we talked. Over the next four years we saw each other off and on. He wrote notes to me when I was in school and sent them with a friend Johnnie. One time we went to a restaurant and I wouldn't order anything so Red ordered me a hamburger. I worked in a sweet shop that had a soda fountain and restaurant. I got $7 a week in pay. I met Red's sister Lucile and she helped me get a job in Yellow Springs, Ohio as a waitress. Red didn't like it, so I quit after a couple months. I dropped out of school in eighth grade and became a waitress in Morgan's Restaurant and my brother and I got an apartment for $3 a week just around the corner. It was about this time Red and I decided to get married. I was 18 in May and we married in September. His boss told him if he got married your fired. We got married and he got fired. I was not making much money to support us. Bob moved to Middletown and Red moved in with me. We were married for 3 months and he told me I would be afraid to have a baby. I got pregnant right away and we moved to a two room apartment next to the creamery on East Third Street near downtown. It was heated with a gas heater. I bought a bird and it was asphyxiated from gas fumes. It was so hot that summer Red was delivering milk for $12.50 per week. If there was enough money left at the end of the week, we would walked to Wilson's Confectionery and get a cold coke for a nickel. We didn't even own a fan and it was terribly hot. I went into labor on a Friday and the doctor came and checked on me several times during the weekend. They finally got another doctor and he told them to take me to the hospital. Mom stayed with me the whole time. Uncle Heavy was standing there chewing his fingernails when they took me away in the ambulance. He later said he didn't think I would come back alive. They had to use forceps to deliver Sally and she had a scrape down her head and face. It was a very difficult delivery. My mom came during the day and helped with Sally. Jay was a large baby and a difficult delivery as well and had difficulty breathing when he was born. We put bricks under the end of the bed to elevate him. Bill was an easier delivery. He came early and weighed about 7 pounds. I got along fine that time. Mom helped me when the boys were born also. We bought the house on Chestnut Street on land contract with no money down. We lived on the south side and a family named Brooks lived on the north side. When they moved we moved into the north side because it was bigger and better. Mary & Heavy came back from the Carolina's and moved in. Wanetta lived with us for a while and worked at General Motors where she met Vance Wissinger. Arlou Gasper did a lot for me through some difficult times. They lived behind us in the little house (we owned that also). We hired a black girl from Longtown whose last name was Jet, to help me after my miscarriage and when I had my teeth pulled. We paid her $3 a week to take care of Sally, Jay & Bill and to clean house. She cared for the kids fine, but didn't know how to clean. I found a card she had written to a girlfriend about how good looking Red was and that was the end of her. Red sold the house on Chestnut at the time he joined the Navy. I was in a panic about how we would live when he sold the house. While he waited to be called he worked at Dayton Racquet Club in Arcanum, making guns. We rented a house in Ft. Jefferson and Red left me with 3 kids and pregnant and joined the Navy. The night I went into labor with Sherry they had warned everyone to stay off the roads. Burdsall's promised to take me to the hospital, but would not go out because of the snow. Nadine came out from Greenville and got me. She drove me to the hospital and dropped me off out front and I walked into the hospital alone and she and went home to her family. This was the easiest delivery I had. About two hours of labor at the hospital and Sherry was born. I just couldn't believe it was that easy. Avo and Mary were at the house with the other kids and I stayed in the hospital for 5 days. Bill didn't want anything to do with the new baby. He had been the baby for four years and it was hard for him to understand. Navy California Trip Sherry Passon Wray: Cora, known as Corky, was a beautician for many years, owning the Lovely Lady Beauty Shop in our home-441 West Plum Street, Tipp City, Ohio. She is easy going, loving and kind. Every kid on the block wanted her to be their Grandma. She made cookies for all of them. Mom's left handed and down through the family we have lefties....Jay, Cindy, Tawni. She always did beautiful crochet work and gave it away. We have several tablecloths and doilies she made, plus Afghans. Henry Ward, second husband of Cora Wood Passon, was married for 30 years to Aunt Margaret Lucile Passon. My aunt died, my father died, and mom married 'Uncle Hank' so he became our step-father. Aunt Lucile and dad were very controlling people. Mom and Hank were easy going. They were married in 1989, married for 8 wonderful years when he died following his second open heart surgery.

Their life was very different from the way we grew up and it was refreshing to be able to have fun and play with my nieces and nephew. Sally welcomed the help entertaining the kids and always shared them freely with me. Later years I was always amazed that she was never jealous if I would do something with her kids. She was just so great about sharing with me Her girls, Cindy, Becky and Jodi, were all born on Friday and Brian was born on Saturday.

FRANK PASSON DEATH HERE VERY SUDDEN
Franklin O. (Frank) Passon, 64, well known Greenville carpenter, died very unexpectedly of a cerebral hemorrhage at 9:30 p.m. at his residence, 124 1/2 East Third (he was at Ella Sharp's house when he died).
Mr. Passon, a lifelong resident of Greenville, was formerly employed by the C.W. Fry Construction Company. At one time he worked as a cabinet maker at the Banner Lumber Company.
Immediate survivors include two sons, Harold of St. Louis, Gerald of Greenville and one daughter Mrs. Lucille Schaffer also of St. Louis. four grandchildren and a sister, Mrs. Grace Howard, of Greenville R.R. 5.
Services will be held Friday at two p.m. at the Zechar funeral home. Burial will be in the Greenville Cemetery. Friends may call at the funeral home after 4:30 p.m. Thursday.



Lived through WWI & WWII. Frank was of medium build, always very well dressed and known for his violent temper. Family history states that he would go to Greenville and get drunk and his buddies would throw him onto his horse and smack the horse and it would take him home - 3 1/2 miles north of Greenville, near Woodington. Frank was a lifelong resident of Darke County and became a cabinet maker at Banner Lumber Company and Fry Construction Company. He was an excellent carpenter, very particular about his tools. An injury caused him to walk with a limp. He could tell jokes and never smile, loved to square dance and went to a dance every Saturday night. He also like to play euchre. Frank told as a kid they would drink a lot of whiskey, then put their head in a vise and pull a tooth. He died at the home of his girlfriend, Ella Sharp, of a cerebral hemorrhage 9:30 A.M. Evidently he told her he wasn't feeling good when he got there and she called for the doctor. He died before the doctor arrived. In his letters he complained about chest pain for a long time. Remembrances of Gerald 'Red' Passon' just as he wrote it: My father was 5'10' tall, 180 #, dark brown hair, blue eyes, brawd sholders, never had an ounce of fat. He was strong as a bull, and temper to match. He maintained a full head of hair and his fisique until his death, lacking a few days of 65 years old. He was a handsome man and always well groomed. He was spoiled as the only boy of William and Anna Passon. My mother Divorced him in 1924. In the early 1920's women were having their hair bobbed and shortened their skirts which was a fastion at that time. Mother had beautiful hair that hung well down to her waist. Mother's step sister-in-law Inez Mills, talked her into the new fastion. On the spur of the moment she had her hair cut and shortened her dress. Dad came home and blew his top. That was the end of their marriage. Although they were Divorced, she was still the only woman in his life. He did not marry again, he always had hopes they would get back together. Even after she had remarried twice. I believe they were both to stuborn to give in. My father would not pay his alimony and Mother's attorney wanted to prosecute him. Mother always said no. It is my belief, after mother past away, my father grieved himself to death six months later. After mother past away, nothing seemed important anymore to him. My bother, sister and I were not close to him under the circumstances. When I would see him, he never failed to ask how my mother was. After Corky and I got married and started our family my father wanted to see his grandchildren. He even went so far as to swipe our Sally's pictures. She was in a dancing school at age 3. He pictures were in the Memorial Hall and some business places around town. The mysterious missing pictures I found on the wall by dad's bed when someone told me he was very ill. I even found a snapshot of my mother on Dad's dresser. When I went into the Navy, Corky moved into an apartment across the alley from dad. He and our family got closer, seemed he wanted to do things he missed out on. He loved my wife and the grandchildren very much. For this I can forgive him for what he did to me. Excerpts from another time Red wrote about his father: I never had a permanent home with either of my parents after I was 11 years old. Dad was given 60 acres of land with house, barn and a start of cows, horses, chickens, implements, furniture and all to start, then he bought 100 more acres of joining land with a morgage on the whole works. When he married my mother, 5 years later he lost it all, gambling, on tobacco, tomatoes and contract crops. In those five years, when he thought he had the wolf from the door, the stork flew in the window with my brother, sister and I. We moved to three different farms and he share cropped. They were short lived as we only stayed one year (season) at each place. We moved to town, he found work at the Banner Lumber Co, where he became a finish carpenter. He worked as a carpenter the rest of his life.

Obituary Greenville Advocate
WIFE OF GREENVILLE LODGE STEWARD DIED
Mae Diedrich, 58, wife of Julius Diedrich, died at 5:40 p.m. Saturday at Stacey Hospital from effects of a cerebral hemorrage she suffered six weeks ago. A native of Wilmington (BLOOMINGTON) OH, she spent most of her life in this city. Surviving are two sons: Harold of St. Louis and Eugene of Greenville, 1 daughter Lucille Schaeffer of St. Louis and a brother Oscar.
Services will be Wednesday at 2 p.m. Zechars Funeral Home with burial at Mote Cemetery, Pitsburg OH. Friends may call at the home, 725 East Third Street until 10 a.m. Wednesday.



In 1910 Iva May Ellison was a housekeeper, living on section 16, Greenville 5. Iva Mae Ellison Passon Small Diedrich is buried in the Mote Cemetery, Pitsburg, Ohio beside her last husband Julius Diedrich. Her marriage to William Small only lasted a short time and she resumed the married name of Passon prior to marrying Julius Diedrich. Her obituary states she was a native of Wilmington, Ohio. She actually was born and lived in Bloomington, Ohio prior to coming to Darke County with her mother in 1913. They lived in Xenia, Ohio for a short time about 1912-13. She always used the name Mae and was steward of the Greenville Moose Lodge when she died. One day in 1948 Grandpa Julie (Julius Diedrich) called Corky and said grandma was acting strange, she didn't know him or who she was. She had to be taken to a Dayton Hospital (Stacy Clinic for mentally ill) where she died some months later. Cause of her death was listed as cerebral hemorrhage. There was always speculation over how she died and what she died from. She had an untreated venereal disease which probably contributed to her death. Remembrances of Gerald 'Red' Passon just as he wrote it: My mother was 5'2' tall with brown hair, blue eyes, slightly petite build, never weighed over 125 lbs and kept her beauty past age 50. She had a lovable, but fiesty attitude. She could fly off the handle one minuet and be so lovable the next. She was one of the finest cooks in the world, I may sound a bit prejudice but there are many who will back me up. She cooked and baked pies in Millers boarding house, as well as several restaurants. I have seem her bake as many as 25 or 30 pies, besides cooking for those big weekend dinner at Millers. She loved every minuet of it. You would seldom see her without a cup of black coffee in her hand or near by. She lost her father in her early childhood when she was quite young. I have been told that she was really spoiled by her twin brother Ray and an older set of twins Oscar (Ossie) and Flossie, big brother Willie Ellison due to their fathers death. Her mother remarried a man with four more older ones, she was always little sis. Maybe that had something to do with her temperament. If she like someone, she loved them, if she didn't she would let them know it. Although I loved her very much, I could never understand her. Mother and father I can forgive you both for giving me the privilege of being a father, grandfather, and great grandfather and being second oldest Passon of 4 generations. Excerpts from another writing about his mother: In her late forties she had an operation. The doctors opened her up and sewed her right back up, they told us she only had a year or two to live. She outlived all the doctors that told us. She passed away at age 58, but not from cancer. I remember asking her one time if she really hated my father as much as she was telling us, she said yes.. Then I ask her if she only loves her half of us children and hated the other half. Her reply was she loved all of us. I said 'my fathers half too?' She got so angry with me I didn't see her for two years. I went to Xenia, Ohio and stayed with Aunt Flossy and Uncle Fred Anderson. For some unknown reason I was Aunt Flossie's pick. She never had any children of her own, but she loved everyone else's. My sister always lived with mom. My brother and I stuck together during our growing up years away from her, all but two or three years so he could finish High School. For this, I can forgive her also.

SULLIVAN, MISSOURI: Harold M. (Heavy) Passon died 7:30 P.M. Sunday at his farm home here. He had been in failing health the past four years. Mrs. Passon, who served in the U.S. Navy as a gunners mate in WWII, graduated from Greenville (Ohio) High School in 1930. He was a member of the Mason Lodge in Gerald, Missouri and the VFW. Surviving are his wife Mary (Hale) Passon; a brother, Gerald "Red" Passon; one sister, Margaret Lucille Ward, Troy, Ohio and several nieces and nephews.

Harold and Mary Hale Passon moved to St. Louis, Missouri (1308 Goodfellow Blvd.) and had a shoe shop there. I can still smell the leather and the polish used in the shop. Uncle Heavy would tool leather and make the most elaborate designs on the leather into ladies purses. He made a small one for me that I carried for years before finally losing it. They had a dog named Tarzie. One visit to St. Louis, I took a walk. I was only about 7 or 8 and I got REALLY lost. Crying, several people came out to help me and all I knew was that we were at Uncle Heavy's house. No one recognized the name but they finally found out from me that he had a shoe shop and someone took me there. The people there called him Pat, not Heavy. Later they moved to a farm outside of Sullivan, Missouri. He had gorgeous dark wavy hair and a great sense of humor. He liked to tease us and was very mischievous. He was more loving to us than our dad was. I remember that vividly because dad didn't show affection and Uncle Heavy would grab and hug us. In other ways he and dad were alike, probably from their upbringing. They lived near Miramac Caverns in Missouri and we didn't see them very often. Uncle Heavy died from heart problems and was buried in Greenville Cemetery. He is in the newer section, far west and toward the middle of that part, with a flat marker.
