Dad was briefly married before WWII. After the war, he left the Navy, moved to Los Angeles, and became a trolley car driver. He met my mother, Dorothy Morrison, a waitress at Tiny Naylor's restaurant, in late 1945, and they were married by a Justice of the Peace on May 22, 1946. After paying the JOP, they had exactly one nickel left between them. Mom's boss at a market gave her a wedding gift of half a pound of bologna, so that's what they ate for dinner that night.
Dad eventually got a job with Northrop Corporation in Hawthorne, California as an accountant. They moved to Torrance, California in 1954, where he lived the rest of his life. They had four children: Knowlton (died at birth, 1958), Richard Jr. (1959), Alice (1961), and Ina (1964).
