Roy DeCuir

My Dad is Roy DeCuir. At the age of 19 he worked in the shipyards for one year where he inhaled asbostos into his lungs. He served in WWII and met my mom in England. In about 1985 he learned he had lung cancer and asbestos. The cancer was completely removed by removing a lung in about 1986, however he could not quit smoking and subsequently the combination of asestos and tobacco combined to bring back the cancer. In the end he suffocated in the hospital because his lungs just stopped working. He was 70 when he died.
