Russell Leonard Garner My Grandpa!

Written by gregdenham on April 3rd, 2018

This is my grandfather. Russell Leonard Garner. I think about him all the time. I think of his family and his grandchildren and great grandchildren and great, great grandchildren who resemble him. I wish he could have seen the beautiful family that came from him. He was Navy Pilot. A leader of a squadron. The personal pilot to Admiral McCain (Senator John McCain’s grandfather). In 1941 on North Island San Diego a few days before Pearl Harbor his plane failed. He didn’t fail, his plane failed. He was thirty-three. My mother was seven years of age. I will meet him one day in heaven. I love you Grandpa!
