In loving memory of my father, James S. McKelvy, who was born June 15, 1918, in Pittsburgh, PA. Dad left us September 15, 1985, in Chicago, IL.

Thanks for your service in the North Atlantic during World War II.

Here we are at Rainbow Beach in Chicago in 1951. Dad taught me to swim in Lake Michigan and the Atlantic Ocean.

    Dang Charley, you looked the same since you were a young kid. I would have had no problem knowing that was you.
