    Cool that your Grandpa knew Lame Duck. That is him in the middle, right?

    Some great pics fellas!

    Man I miss my Gramps, he was my best friend. Hardworking, funny, loyal, tough and very caring. I was blessed enough to have him around until I was 42. He also cursed us with the obsession known as waterfowling.

    Pic of Gramps when he was a Butcher in San Francisco. This was when Hunter's Point had all the meat packing plants. He went on to be the Secretary Treasurer for the Butcher's Union in South San Francisco.

    He's in the middle with his arms extended. I think this picture is circa 1940.

    Gramps when he shot his last duck at the young age of 87.
