Born: January 1, 1923
My great-grandpa was Fran Lowney. He was born on January 1, 1923, in Houghton, Michigan. My great-grandpa was in World War II. He was an anti-chopper gunner sergeant, and he survived. He was on the Portage Lake Pioneers hockey team. He played defense. He was number 8. My great-grandpa was also very good at golf. He had a positive impact on my family's life because he always made us laugh by telling jokes and other stuff like that. He also helped us when we needed it.
