My grandpa’s lucky # was 28

My grandpa was born on August 12 outside of Liverpool England, before his family immigrated to Canada than the US during the 1920s. He was offered a football scholarship to USC (he proudly kept the letter) but turned it down to take a job as a boilermaker with the railroad. I learned from my parents today his lucky number was 28, since that was his football number and the age when he was married. His father fought for England in WW1 a d grandpa served the US Navy in WW2 and Korea.
