Lorem Ipsum Herman Leo Brasfield (4/24/1917 - 9/12/1981)

This interest in the Brasfield / Brassfield name came from my father, Herman Leo Brasfield. He was born in Arkansas, one of 7 children. Near the end of the Great Depression, at the age of 21, he moved with his parents and siblings to California. It was there that he met and married my mother, Lois Marquiss in 1939.

He went off to the Second World War with the U.S. 8th Army Air Corps and was stationed in England. He returned to his family after the war and began a long and successful career with the Department of Defense. He passed away at the age of 64 in Seattle, Washington in 1981.

He was a kind and gentle man, very much respected by those that had the opportunity to know him. He obtained a copy of the "McAllister" book when it was first published, and I only regret that I did not do a better job of listening when he talked of his life, times, and family.
