Story # 71
My Dad would have been 100 years old today. Kenneth William Hunter was born November 15, 1912. His parents, William and Clara Hunter, were Farmers and Dad was a Farmer.
I was encouraged to leave the farm so that I would have an easier life. It was decided for me when, in 1962, he had a heart attack and died. At the time, treatment for heart problems was bed rest------ completely opposite of today’s angioplasty and stent treatments with full activity.
The farm was gone and I was away from it but I eventually came back to growing things. Through a great set of events, I ended up at Penn State studying horticulture and commercial flower production.
In the greenhouse, I was farming in a building.
Don’t let anybody tell you that we should go back to the ‘Good Old Days’.
In the old days, there was no medical treatment for blocked arteries to the heart.
