My Father’s Brother, Faris

 Entry (Story) Told in 1984 (I added info)
Father told me that he last saw his half brother, Faris (LYLE) when Faris was in the Air Force about in the 1940’s. All he, (my father) remembered (was) that Faris wanted  him, (my daddy) to join the army etc. He , ( Faris) was 16 at the time. After serving his time, he got a job in NY and made his home (there). He married and had ? 8 children.

Faris  passed in Feb 2008 at the age of 84. He and his wife were buried in Farmingdale, Suffolk County, New York. Their daughter, Nejla LYLE was buried there also.

I’m thankful that I had to honor to correspond and speak with my Uncle Faris on the phone. Also I have contacts with some of their grandchildren. I’m glad that we connected.

Thanks for reading.
