The Life and Times of HOJO (Harold Otto John) Wilke is a historical biography about an American caucasian man of the twentieth century. He was my dad. This is a Christian oriented book because dad was a Christian man. He wasn't a Bible thumper and he never went door to door evangelizing, but he did attend church regularly. He was a hard working middle class guy who did the best he could to raise a family of six children and keep his one wife happy. I consider that a tremendous accomplishment. The book takes a snapshot of dad's life every five years from the day he was born into the new millenium. The snapshots include some interesting statistics, inventions, and events of the highlighted years. Some chapter titles are: "April 8, 1924: Birth & Birdseye", "1939: Work & Cup Sizes", "1955: Plant Manager & In God We Trust", "1970: Turmoil & Four Dead in Ohio", "1995: Florida Heaven & It Did Not Fit", "2003, February: Chemotherapy 101", and "2004: Final Hours". Dad was a WWII veteran and fought in the real Battle of the Bulge in Western Europe in the winter of 1944-45. He also fought an emotional battle against cancer for the last few years of his life. That fight brought his family together in a way that only a Christian family can come together, in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to battle with him. I invite you to take a peek into the Life and Times of HOJO Wilke and see what life was like for a common middle class American man and his family in the twentieth century.
