Born: October 12, 1928
Location: Calumet, Michigan
My grandpa, Warner Liimatta, was born in Calumet, Michigan on April 5, 1928, and died on October 12, 1994. Life was hard for families in the Copper Country back then. Warner was the oldest child in a family with eight children. He worked in a mine when he was a teenager to help his family have enough money. Later he learned how to be a carpenter, and he was a very good carpenter. He loved to go fishing, camping, traveling, hunting and do crossword puzzles. My grandpa has taught his family to work hard, to have fun, and to enjoy fishing.
