Albert William van Borkum was the third of 6 children born to Frances and John van Borkum. It was Christmas 1943 when this photo was taken by Albert's wife Maxine.
Albert William van Borkum
February 1, 1983.
Albert is the guy with the hat and overalls and sans cigar. John, his father, has the business suit--and cigar.
Word was that John was just as dower as his appearance suggests!
Junior (Albert William Jr.) is in front of his Dad (Albert William) and the new baby, John Charles, is held by his Grandmother. Betty is standing to Albert's right. If you look carefully you can see the star hanging in the window indicating a member of the family in the military during WW2.
Albert owned the
van Borkum Fruits & Vegetables Company
started by his father in Beatrice Nebraska. It carries the van Borkum name
even now although no longer owned by the family.
