    I know we have some members older than me and I just marked my dad's birthday, even though he died 50 years ago.

    But, he was born in 1899. How about you? Either parent born earlier?

    Lost mom 25 years ago.

    Wow that's a long time ago.

    Both alive and doing well.

    Dad 1917. Red Sox won the World Series in 1918. A lifelong fan he died of Alzheimer's in 2004, a couple weeks after they finally won it again, but he never knew. RIP.

    Mom 1920 but died 1984 six months after a cancer diagnosis. RIP.

    I hopefully have another 30 more years. Unless a jealous husband...

    Like smartone, my Dad was born in 1934, my Mom 1932.

    My Gramma was born in 1899 though. As a kid in the 60's I thought that was pretty cool (and ancient).

    Hey Joe, your Dad must have had you pretty late in life cause I know you're not that old.

    My parents were pretty old when they had me. My father was born in 1916. My maternal grandfather that I shared a bedroom with growing up was born in 1888.

    No wonder you are so much older than me, Joe!

    They are missed. But I have lots of great memories. Just wish my 7 year old knew them. He will through me and other family members.

    Dad born in 1921 and Mom in 1926. Dad is 93 and in excellent physical & mental health...takes no medication. Mom has some circulation problems in her legs but otherwise is healthy. They drove over from Michigan to visit me last month (a 750 mile drive); drove it in one day. They have a house on Lake Huron; my Dad still insists on driving the Boston Whaler when we go trolling for walleye and salmon. I have a hard time keeping up with him when we clean fish. They maintain a huge garden every year. My Dad's cousin died last year at age 107. He lived independently and was active right up til a month before he died. They threw a birthday party for him when he turned 100. They asked him what he wanted for a birthday present...he said that they could get him a cord of wood; but just to pile it in the yard..he wanted to stack it himself.

    Yea, I was an oops, dad was 53. :wink2: Mom was in her late 30s.

    I had two half sisters that would be in their 90s now and my twin brothers are 74 and my oldest brother is 76. Mom had 4 boys and worked full time her entire life.

    I'm just a kid at 61.

    I don't know the dates but 3 of my grandparents were born in the 1800's. My father's parents probably in the late 1880's. The other's in the 1890's. One was born in the 1910's (we're from my grandfather's second wife). My father was born in 1927.

    My grandparents were born in the 1911-1912 time frame.

    My father was born in 1928, died in 1991.
    My mother was born in 1930. Still alive but with some serious health issues.
