My great-grandfather, Willard Haataja, was born in Elo, Michigan on January 2, 1934. He lived in Texas for 3 years, but he missed his family so he came back to Michigan to live. He was a machinist. He can also weld, paint, fish, and carve wood. He was also in the Navy. We all loved him because he was a great brother, dad, grandfather, uncle, and cousin. In June 2007, he died.Willard Haataja,
