Memories of my Father - George Daniel Brantzeg Written by George Maurice Brantzeg 2002 My Father was born in Malad, a small town in Southern Idaho in 1894. He was the youngest child of Peter Olaus Brantzeg and Josephine Marie Jensen. His father died when he was about eleven years old and his mother died when he was fourteen. He was raised by his older Sister Nellie until he was old enough to leave home. He only had about an Eighth Grade education due to the limited opportunities and family circumstances. When he was 23 he was drafted into the Army and served in France during World War I. He and his next older brother Harry were able to serve in the same unit. After the war he worked at several jobs before being hired as a Brakeman on the Union Pacific Railroad. He eventually settled in Salt Lake City where he met my Mother, Alice Minerva Lower. They were married in 1926 and I was born the following year. I remember him as a kind and attentive Father who tried to teach me proper principles of conduct. He only had one serious fault and that was his alcohol problem. When he had been drinking he was a completely different person. Eventually his drinking problem resulted in his being laid off from work for periods of time. During these times my mother had to go back to work to support us. Finally she decided he would never overcome this problem and they were divorced after 13 years of marriage when I was eleven years old. My Mother and I moved into a small apartment and he lived in a hotel room. I would occasionally visit him. He never overcame his drinking habit and eventually died of alcohol related causes at the age of 51. My Father’s parents were both born in Norway and were both converts to the LDS Church. My Grandfather was the only member of his family to join the Church and emigrated alone. He never saw any of his family again. My Grandmother’s family joined the Church and emigrated together with one brother coming first to prepare the way. Both of my Grandparents settled in the Scandinavian colony in Ephraim, Utah where they met and married. Most of their children were born in Ephraim but they later moved to Malad where my Father, their youngest child was born. When my Grandfather was a boy in Norway he lived in a seaport town and liked to play on the ships. One day he fell off the deck into the hold suffering a disabling injury. He didn’t heal properly and it stunted the growth of his legs, giving him a dwarfish appearance in his adult life. It must have affected his personality too because all my Father would ever say about his Father was that he was stern. My Grandmother by contrast, judging by pictures was quite a pretty woman. She also had a nurturing nature. My Grandfather supported his family by working as a shoemaker. I have in my possession the shoe forms he used to build the shoes. All four of my Grandparents died before I was born.

Life timeline of George Maurice Brantzeg

George Maurice Brantzeg was born on 18 Sep 1927
George Maurice Brantzeg was 12 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
George Maurice Brantzeg was 18 years old when World War II: Nagasaki is devastated when an atomic bomb, Fat Man, is dropped by the United States B-29 Bockscar. Thirty-five thousand people are killed outright, including 23,200-28,200 Japanese war workers, 2,000 Korean forced workers, and 150 Japanese soldiers. Nagasaki is the capital and the largest city of Nagasaki Prefecture on the island of Kyushu in Japan. The city's name, 長崎, means "long cape" in Japanese. Nagasaki became a centre of colonial Portuguese and Dutch influence in the 16th through 19th centuries, and the Hidden Christian Sites in the Nagasaki Region have been recognized and included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Part of Nagasaki was home to a major Imperial Japanese Navy base during the First Sino-Japanese War and Russo-Japanese War.
George Maurice Brantzeg was 28 years old when Disneyland Hotel opens to the public in Anaheim, California. The Disneyland Hotel is a resort hotel located at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, owned by the Walt Disney Company and operated through its Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products division. Opened on October 5, 1955, as a motor inn owned and operated by Jack Wrather under an agreement with Walt Disney, the hotel was the first to officially bear the Disney name. Under Wrather's ownership, the hotel underwent several expansions and renovations over the years before being acquired by Disney in 1988. The hotel was downsized to its present capacity in 1999 as part of the Disneyland Resort expansion.
George Maurice Brantzeg was 42 years old when During the Apollo 11 mission, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon. Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two people on the Moon. Mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the lunar module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC. Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface six hours after landing on July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC; Aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later. They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft, and collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material to bring back to Earth. Michael Collins piloted the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface. Armstrong and Aldrin spent 21.5 hours on the lunar surface before rejoining Columbia in lunar orbit.
George Maurice Brantzeg was 51 years old when Jim Jones led more than 900 members of the Peoples Temple to mass murder/suicide in Jonestown, Guyana, hours after some of its members assassinated U.S. Congressman Leo Ryan (pictured). James Warren Jones was an American religious cult leader who initiated and was responsible for a mass suicide and mass murder in Jonestown, Guyana. He considered Jesus Christ as being in compliance with an overarching belief in socialism as the correct social order. Jones was ordained as a Disciples of Christ pastor, and he achieved notoriety as the founder and leader of the Peoples Temple cult.
George Maurice Brantzeg was 54 years old when The first launch of a Space Shuttle (Columbia) takes place: The STS-1 mission. The Space Shuttle was a partially reusable low Earth orbital spacecraft system operated by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), as part of the Space Shuttle program. Its official program name was Space Transportation System (STS), taken from a 1969 plan for a system of reusable spacecraft of which it was the only item funded for development. The first of four orbital test flights occurred in 1981, leading to operational flights beginning in 1982. In addition to the prototype whose completion was cancelled, five complete Shuttle systems were built and used on a total of 135 missions from 1981 to 2011, launched from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida. Operational missions launched numerous satellites, interplanetary probes, and the Hubble Space Telescope (HST); conducted science experiments in orbit; and participated in construction and servicing of the International Space Station. The Shuttle fleet's total mission time was 1322 days, 19 hours, 21 minutes and 23 seconds.
George Maurice Brantzeg was 72 years old when Columbine High School massacre: Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 13 people and injured 24 others before committing suicide at Columbine High School in Columbine, Colorado. The Columbine High School massacre was a school shooting that occurred on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School in Columbine, an unincorporated area of Jefferson County, Colorado, United States, in the Denver metropolitan area. In addition to the shootings, the complex and highly planned attack involved a fire bomb to divert firefighters, propane tanks converted to bombs placed in the cafeteria, 99 explosive devices, and car bombs. The perpetrators, senior students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, murdered 12 students and one teacher. They injured 21 additional people, and three more were injured while attempting to escape the school. The pair subsequently committed suicide.
George Maurice Brantzeg was 76 years old when Invasion of Iraq: In the early hours of the morning, the United States and three other countries (the UK, Australia and Poland) begin military operations in Iraq. The 2003 invasion of Iraq was the first stage of the Iraq War. The invasion phase began on 20 March 2003 and lasted just over one month, including 21 days of major combat operations, in which a combined force of troops from the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland invaded Iraq. This early stage of the war formally ended on 1 May 2003 when U.S. President George W. Bush declared the "end of major combat operations", after which the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) was established as the first of several successive transitional governments leading up to the first Iraqi parliamentary election in January 2005. U.S. military forces later remained in Iraq until the withdrawal in 2011.
