Grandpa Dean was a mighty hunter and fisherman

What I remember most of Grandpa Dean ( my mom's dad) was that he loved to hunt and fish!. Almost every time we went to visit he was outside cleaning fish, he had just caught and he would show us ones still wiggling in the bucket, (GROSS) and then he would wack them on the head with a black night stick and then cut them and gut them, not my favorite thing to watch as a young girl. Grandpa had a cabin up in the hills above Richmond, Utah. It was actually a mine. I went once and walked all the way there it was like 5 miles and I was the only girl. Not until we reached there did my father tell me there was not potty up there. UGH!!! We had a picnic lunch and the men shot grouse and pheasant to take back to Grandma Millie to cook for supper. That was my last trip to the Cabin ever!! Whenever we went to Grandpa's house he would have to give himself insulin shots with glass syringes when I was younger and they were huge as I grew up and medical technology got better the syringes got smaller and so did the needles. Grandma always had a bag of candy in the kitchen cupboard, she told us that was grandpa's candy and we were not to touch it! But we were kids and always snuck a piece or two. Grandpa was a state meat inspector later on in life and we went to see him at work. It was gross all that raw meat hanging around. In 1986 mom called and said we needed to hurry to get to cache valley to say good bye to grandpa! I picked Alexia up from day care and Lynn up from work and we drove as quickly as we could. Grandpa Dean said he needed to move but he was to sore, so we used my CNA training and picked up the corners of the sheets and six of us turned him over. He screamed during this in pain. It was sad. After the family Left Grandpa Passed away in his sleep. He was just waiting for everyone to leave. I learned later in life that Grandpa had been Bishop, Mayor of Richmond, Utah and that he had owned the local grocery store. Grandpa was born and died in the same house and only left when my parents took him to Hawaii because that is where Grandma Millie wanted to go. I am Grateful to Grandpa Dean for my heritage. Love ya Grandpa

The New York Stock Exchange, is an American stock exchange located at 11 Wall Street, Lower Manhattan, New York City, New York. It is by far the world's largest stock exchange by market capitalization of its listed companies at US$21.3 trillion as of June 2017. The average daily trading value was approximately US$169 billion in 2013. The NYSE trading floor is located at 11 Wall Street and is composed of 21 rooms used for the facilitation of trading. A fifth trading room, located at 30 Broad Street, was closed in February 2007. The main building and the 11 Wall Street building were designated National Historic Landmarks in 1978.
Dean Andrus was 20 years old when Great Depression: In a State of the Union message, U.S. President Herbert Hoover proposes a $150 million (equivalent to $2,197,000,000 in 2017) public works program to help generate jobs and stimulate the economy. The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.
Dean Andrus was 35 years old when World War II: Hiroshima, Japan is devastated when the atomic bomb "Little Boy" is dropped by the United States B-29 Enola Gay. Around 70,000 people are killed instantly, and some tens of thousands die in subsequent years from burns and radiation poisoning. 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.
Dean Andrus was 43 years old when Jonas Salk announced the successful test of his polio vaccine on a small group of adults and children (vaccination pictured). Jonas Edward Salk was an American medical researcher and virologist. He discovered and developed one of the first successful polio vaccines. Born in New York City, he attended New York University School of Medicine, later choosing to do medical research instead of becoming a practicing physician. In 1939, after earning his medical degree, Salk began an internship as a physician scientist at Mount Sinai Hospital. Two years later he was granted a fellowship at the University of Michigan, where he would study flu viruses with his mentor Thomas Francis, Jr.

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.
