This is Denny H. McClarren Sr., – he was still in the ARMY – and before he ever came to Missouri – and before he married my Mother!
When Daddy had finished his three stints in the Army – he was traveling on a train from California to Missouri and the next destination to his home in OHIO! While traveling on the train – he met some of the family relatives – the FLEMING cousins – to my Mother – and in a get-to-gather – to welcome “HOME” all the boys in the service – who were friends – there was a party and of course my Mother – a most beautiful young lady – was introduced – and the rest of the story in now “HISTORY!”
The above picture of Daddy looks a little like – “George Raft” a movie star – that my Mother liked – and who was a terrific dancer – but I guess when I was in High School – I told my Mother that – I thought Daddy looked like “Clark Gable” – – and in fact – if you ever watch the movie “Any Number Can Play” – my Daddy could pass for “Clark Gable!” Something about the way they move and especially when you see them smoke – they could pass for twins – they were both born in Ohio and near each other – so maybe – we can just guess??? Their birthdays are just a day or two apart –
“So – here is wishing – DADDY a Happy Birthday – that would be on 02-02-12 – and lots of fun – where ever you you are???”
