Ginger was born an identical twin on November 13, 1947 in Fargo, ND.  Growing up, Ginger attended school in Glendive, MT.  Following his school years, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1964 and served alongside two of his brothers on the Aircraft Carrier USS Saratoga in the Mediterranean.  In 1968, Ginger was honorably discharged from the Navy.

Ginger enjoyed spending time with Elaine at their winter home in Brenda, AZ.  While there, they spent many hours riding their razor in the desert, and making many life-long friends.  Ginger was also a huge fan of NASCAR, and also loved to watch sprint car racing.

Enjoyed visiting with Ginger whenever our paths crossed.  His folks and mine were very close and lived in the same area of Arizona for some time.  Keeping in contact for years.  I entered the Navy the year after Pepper and Ginger got out, and had looked up to these two for some time.  RIP Ginger....<3
