    Notes 
    • Wilbur was fond of teasing his sister Theona.  He would hide behind doors and say "boo" or make sounds if he thought she was alone in the house.  One day when she was 11 or 12 she turned the tables.  She was between the doors between the stairwell and the dining room and he was headed up the stairs.  When she said "boo", he fainted!  She was punished for days.
          He had the ability to make his mother laugh when she was angry with him.  For example, if he was fighting with his sister, mother would tell the children to find a hazelnut switch.  While his sister would obediently find a switch, he would retrieve a log.  His mother would laugh and all would be forgiven. To baby-sit his sister, he often took her to the picture show.  He liked scary movies.  His little sister cried and hid her head. He was a good student at Arleta School and Franklin High School, and an Eagle Scout.  Later he became a Scout Master.
          Trained as an electrician, he became an appliance repair man.  He worked on refrigerators, televisions, radios and smaller kitchen appliances. His wife Ina grew up in the same neighborhood but had moved away.  He was very fond of a girl from Seattle, but her mother didn't feel this was a suitable match.  He met Ina again and they were married soon after.
