Garth Almoran Hitchcock

His nickname was “Red”
His hair color the same
My family search started
Looking for his name
He left this earth
When I was but three
The stories I heard
My Grandma told me
I remembered the town
Where she said he once grew
In Sanborn I inquired
To see what they knew
I found he was born there
To Lena and Charlie
His Mom died in childbirth
For which I was sorry
The siblings divided
Among relatives raised
He excelled in sports
For which he was praised
He lived with a cousin
And also his Nana
After graduation he left
To play football in Indiana
He returned to Iowa
Worked for a five and dime
Then married Genevive
After dating for some time.
