Marvin Laub is tough

  1. He recovered from knee and brain surgery, never complaining, and remaining cheerful and up-beat.
  2. He worked hard his whole life. Even at 79 years old he is still working, giving drivers training tests (Its not dangerous. These kids are already driving with their parents for a few months. My dad drives safe places with them, and gives them all very straight forward exams).
  3. He raised 5 kids, without ever really freaking out. You have to endure a lot of stuff to do that, and he did it with great strength.

You should write your father's Life History

Best reasons to agree: +6
  1. Its hard to understand yourself very well without trying to figure out parents.
  2. Your kids will want to know about their grandparents.
  3. If your kids become famous, biographers will want to know about your family. 
  4. Writing about your parents can be a fun activity that brings your family together. Its a good way to remember stuff. 
  5. A well rounded person can have fun, work hard, relax, and also find time to write about their experiences, or document what they are doing, or did. 
  6. You can't just do stuff all the time... you also have to reflect... going through the process of gathering stories, photos, and memories allows you to process, and look back...
Best reasons to disagree: -1
  1.  Every time you spend doing one thing is time you can't spend doing something else.

Mom and Dad in Sun Valley.
This is my dad's life history. Also check out the ongoing projects for my mom, and mom's mom, and dad's mom.

I asked my dad the following questions:

1. What is your full name? Why did your parents select this name for you? Did you have a nickname?
It was his Mom's dad's name (James Anderson). Melvin and Marvin because he was the oldest. He was only 15 minutes older. He would always rub it in.

2. When and where were you born?
Dad was born at the Dee Memorial Hospital in Ogden Utah. This is also where my Mother-in-law was born.

He also lived on the Fort Warren Army and Air Force base, in Shayne Wyoming. Baptized in Shayane. He was living there when WWII broke out in 1941 (December 7th). His Dad was shipped out a month later to Africa. Air force was a branch of the army. They were fighting Germany in 39 and 40. Was living in Shayane when Pearl Harbor was bombed.
