One was a master carpenter. I would consider some of his work art.

The other was a teacher and novelist.

One of my grandmothers worked in the munitions factories again the other..no idea!
Recently found out my Grandfather (the miner) was also a fireman during WW2

My pappy worked in the coal mines in Eastern Ky. He retired when he was 45 due to black lung. Dangerous, Dirty, and low paying work back then.

My grandfather was a lawyer in Mississippi who defended blacks in court during a time extreme unrest. He eventually had his house burned down and had to send his entire family to Massachusetts to be safe.

He later became a judge up north.

He basically played the role of Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird.

My maternal Grandfather was a boiler maker on ships. He loved working the ship yards. When Jacksonville shipyards were slow he would go up to SC for a week at a time to get work there. I still remember vividly the day he passed away and I was 6 years old. He had just recently quit drinking and coincidentally he was killed when a drunk driver ran a stop sign and pulled right in him path.

My paternal Grandfater I don't know much about. He died of lung cancer when my dad was 7 years old. I do know he was in the Navy. My dad got alot of pictures of him when my grandmother passed away. It is scary how much I look like a man I never knew.

My Maternal Grandfather pretty much raised me as a kid. An awsome guy with a big heart and a big hug. I never knew anyone as caring as that man. (He just passed away a month ago.....)

My Paternal Grandfather was retired when I met him for the first time when we moved back East from California (Age 6). He lived upstairs and maintained one of the best gardens in Arlington. (I even shoveled da poop to keep er goin!)

Since my hobby back then was eating... I managed to eat one of his prized tomatoes.... (Seeds ya know).. Wellllll ... He plotted.... He waited.... Then he planted some of the hottest Habenero peppers available at the time and waited.......... for me to go after one of them.

I did! and he was there to see it! Probably one of the best days of his life the old bastard.... I turned Blue... then Green... then Red. Thought I was gonna die. Ol Grandpa loved every second of it.

My paternal grandfather and his brother both became interested in cars. They were both immigrants from Ireland in the late 1800's as children. They both started working on cars in the early 1910's. My grandfather was a good mechanic and driver and became a chauffeur for a wealthy family. The family lived in North Carolina (tobacco company President), but the wife was from Maryland and kept a second home in Maryland. That was where my grandfather worked for them. They had a stable of cars; Lasalles, Dusies, Cords, Packards, all great American iron of a bygone era. My grandfather loved cars, although my grandmother never allowed him to own one (supposedly), since he could bring one home every night. When he died, we discovered 2 garages he had been renting that had 5 cars in them and another 3 cars that he kept at his brothers dealership. Move of them were typical chevys and fords, but he did have Desoto with a hemi in it and apparently his favorite, a very rare Nash Healey. His brother had a pretty good gift of gab and ended up selling cars, eventually owning his own Pontiac dealership. I learned to drive and took my driving test in one of his cars, a '68Pontiac Lemans convertible.

I never knew my maternal grandfather, he died before my mom and dad even met. He died young, in his 40's. He was a civil engineer that helped design and build the railroad system in Maryland, Penn and West Virginia.

Both granddads were machinists/tool & die makers at the Foxboro Company. Paternal died when I was 10 days old in 1959; just had to put the maternal granddad into a rest home (age 95).

Moms side, no idea, never really knew him.

Dads side. I don't know what he did before he was drafted or enlisted in the military and served in WWII. After he worked at a grocery store for a while, then was a meter reader for the electric company before becoming a dispatcher then retiring in the 90's. Since he was with the electric company for so long, many times I was able to ride on their trucks in parades.

Grandfather was the lead engineer in designing the torpedoes for the U.S. submarine fleet that were used in the later stages of the cold war. I've been told one of them was lost in the prototype phase and he was on board one of the submarines that was racing the Russians to recover but I don't know all of the details or how the Russians knew one was lost.

I do remember when he died the Men in Black arrived to recover all of his briefcases, etc.

My paternal grandfather was a customs and excise officer. I never knew him as he died of a brain hemorrhage (I had a brain hemorrhage too, thanks grampa for the gene).
My maternal grandfather was a Royal Post member for many, many years. He was awarded an OBE (Order of the British Empire) medal for his long service - a very proud moment for our family.
