My Memoirs

I was born August 3, 1964, in Enid, Oklahoma. My father
Richard Louis Gabriel was station at Vance Air Force Base
Enid, OK. I suffered from oxygen deprivation during
childbirth; this can happen at any stage of the pregnancy,
but most occur at birth and are cause by negligent medical
care. I am the youngest of five children. As a young
child I was a little slower than the other child my age
probability from my mishap at my birth. I was told that I
was always fidgeting with my hands or feet or squirming in
my chair and had difficulty remaining seated. I acted as
if I driven by a motor. I talked excessively, blurted out
answers before questions have been completed, had
difficulty waiting or taking turns. Interrupted or
intruded upon others. My Dad was soon transfer to Bitburg
Air Base were I grow-up the first four years of my
childhood in Germany. When we lived in Bitberg, Germany we
lived with a Germany family Barbara took special interest
in me. Six months before I was born The Beatles made their
American debut February 23, 1964. Lyndon Baines Johnson
was President of the United States of America.

Growing-up in Germany I remember walking to the store with
Dad to get Sunday morning newspaper, Dad would pick up
cigarettes Lucky Strikers. He would but me the candy
cigarettes they had to Lucky Strikes logo or the red
target on the front of the package. I thought I was to
cool for words. I have memories of my older brothers and
sisters talking about watch classic American television
show like Bonanza dub in German I wish I could remember
that for myself that most have been hilarious to see.

My father Richard Louis Gabriel was a career Air Force guy
I hardy show growing up. I do have very special memories
do things with dad like our American River rafting trip in
California thanks Dad I will never forget that trip. Dad
was born in Buffalo, New York August 13, 1928. My Mother
Barbara Ann Gabriel was born March 13, 1933, in Worcester,
MA. Barbara’s maiden name was Macaulay.

My father Richard Louis was the son of Louis George I
never had the opportunity to meet him died September 14,
1965 I was a year old. His mother was Marion Fitzgerald.
Louis was born May 12, 1903 in Canton Ohio; Marion was
born January 27, 1902 and died September 9, 1985 in
Merced, California. They were both interred at 1 Mount
Calvary Cemetery, Buffalo, NY. My mother’s father Fredrick
Macaulay was born 1895 die in 1971. Her mother Anne Law
McPhee-Macaulay was born 1898 she die 1934 my mother was
only year old. I have fund memories of Fred visiting use
in Germany and Louisiana, but he Pass way in 1971. Dads’
mother was the only one of my grandparents that I remember
well she stay with use in our Family home in Merced,
California. Marion had no role in my family while I was
growing up she was in Buffalo, NY for most of my up bring,
It was not until I was in High School that she came to
live with use and she had had several stokes so grandma
time was non-existent. Mom and I were her main care

Yes, I did have a happy childhood. I did for the most part
have two very loving parents. I spent the first four years
of my life in Bitburg, Germany. We lived in town with a
Germany family Barbara Guymer took special interest in
me. I spent a lot of my time upstairs with her family.
When we return to the States we live for a year in
Barksdale Air Base, La. Before moving onto Castle Air Base
in Atwater, Ca where Dad and Mom bought the first home in
near by Merced, Ca. I was the only one out of Five
Children that want to school K thou College in one
community. I lived there for twenty years of my life.
Spent long hot summers working and Play on Richard P.
Sequeira’s family dairy in Chowchilla, Ca, and Greg
Reodell another and his family moved to Merced after his
father retired from the Navy down in San Diego, Ca were
Greg’s heart has always been and in fact he is now raising
his family in that area. One of my most memorable summer
memories was our first summer 1971 we and a family made
our first of many trips to Yosemite national Park WOW! One
really sad time I was 16 when Greg’s pass way after long
fight with Leukemia. Mary Reodell was the first person I
know and was friends with that had die. Other than my
grandparents I never had to deal with death so close to me
I simple did not know how I was going to deal with it. I
do not remember if Mary was 15 I do know that I was upset
for awhile with God until I realized that Mary was in a
much better place than I was at that time.
