Uncle Chuck & Aunt Em - I remember visiting them frequently growing up to have a "Barrett Burger"! They were absolutely delicious and he cooked them on the BBQ at each family gathering.

I just noticed that a number of family members and family friends had connections to Missoula Montana, Bremerton Washington and San Jose California. I asked my mother why each family followed the same patterns and was told the following:

When Uncle Chuck came back from the Korean War he was without “professional skills” so he went to live with his step-sister, my grandmother, Marian Joyce Benning Kroetch in San Jose, CA. My great grandmother, Eileen Constance Tasker Benning, was horrified at the living conditions of my grandmother and grandfather in NYC, where they were living at the time, and gave them money to move. It was at this time that my grandparents moved to San Jose, CA to be close to my grandmother’s best friend Bev Scoffone.


After my grandparents moved again (to Seattle WA in 1959) Chuck then went home to Missoula where he found his life long partner and they began their married life in San Jose to be close to family.

For 20+ years Chuck would pick, shine and then sell his half pound of Persimmons to local grocery stores in the San Jose area. He also would give some to my grandmother Joyce Vandever so she could make persimmon cookies. Those that had blemishes were dried. After he passed, his wife and grandsons couldn't keep up with the picking so the tree was removed.
