The DWGathman Family

JERSEY KIDS. Dad grew up in the William Gathman household in Patterson, New Jersey. Following graduation from high school, where he was valedictorian, he went to the prestigious Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, graduating in 1939 with his degree in Mechanical Engineering. He was the middle of three children, and was close to his older sister, our Aunt Dorothy, and his younger brother, our Uncle Bob. (Shown below are Dad with his Mom (top photo), Dad (lower photo) and his brother, Bob, during the War Years. Dad was a Navy man who served in the South Pacific. Uncle Bob was an Army man who helped spearhead Patton’s charge across France to end the War in Europe.)
