Russell Emery Girton is my uncle, the son of Emery Franklin and Margaret Scott (Snook) Girton. He was born 22 Sep 1916 at Great Falls, Montana. (see Arthur D. Girton). Around 1965, he, his wife Delores, and their four girls moved to Hastings, Nebraska, where he lived out the rest of his life. He carried the nickname "Bandit" (I have no idea why).
I got to know him as he visited family in Idaho and Washington State many times in his later years. I feel proud to have known him.
