  • ① My Father (Part I) My father was born in 1927. At the age of 17, he left home to enlist in the U.S. Merchant Marines where he served his country during World War II. He had to lie about his age because he was supposed to be at least 18 years old to join. However, he then discovered he was too skinny, being five pounds under the minimum weight requirement. So, he went to a nearby market and bought a lot of bananas and started eating. After eating as much as he could, he went back to be weighed again only to discover he was still two pounds underweight. However, the enlistment officer said to him, “Young man, if you want to join the Merchant Marines that much, we will take you.” He served on a Liberty ship that transported troops, equipment and supplies through-out the war and was lucky to have survived since more merchant seamen died in World War II than in any other branch of the U.S. military because so many ships were sunk by submarines.

  • ② My Father (Part 2) My father, Murray Neil Baker, was born in 1927 and died in 2020. He was 92 years old when he passed away and had been married to my mother for sixty-three years. Even as my father got older, he was in amazing health. However, this past March, my father was unexpectedly diagnosed with terminal cancer that had begun in his lungs and had spread into his bones. My son and daughter and I immediately flew to Seattle to be with him in the hospital. We were at his bedside along with my mother when he passed away just four days later. The suddenness of his passing was a shock, but we will forever be grateful we were able to spend those final days with him. As my father had gotten older, he had begun to write down short stories from his life which he had bound into a little book. I am so grateful for that book and the memories it holds about my father. My children also wrote amazing tributes to him when he died that they posted on Facebook.
