My great-grandpa, Rafael Maki, was born on July 27, 1916, and he died on April 2, 1999. He was in W.W.II and survived. He was in Germany for the war. He also was in the Navy. He knew and learned many skills. He was a very good carpenter. Rafael Maki was a trapper too. He did landscaping and was an all a round handyman. He taught his family many of these skills which is how they made a living. He taught them to be hard workers and to appreciate life.
