Today, my father went home to his father.
My dad was born in Rumford, Maine. He graduated from
Stephens High School. He was the oldest of five children born to
John A. Gillis and Emelia Marie Carrier.
He is survived by one sister.
(Above, my dad is in the lower right corner.)
Upon returning home, my dad attended the Boston College of Optometry and then moved to southern California. Following are some of my favorite photographs of my dad.
I hope my dad has a joyous reunion with his family.
To my blog readers, thank you for your support these last 6 years. I have decided to discontinue this phase of my career. I have loved and learned from these posts.
