Pa almost went to Paris, France when he enlisted in the Armed Forces during the first World War. However, he never got the chance to visit Paris since they told him that he wouldn't go "until they scraped the bottom of the barrel."
He has two known siblings: an unnamed sister from Portland, and a younger brother named "Sedge" who lives in the Ozarks. Other relatives include his cousin Rodney Kettle, a Hawaii-based entrepreneur, and a nephew in the Armed Forces who was present during the "atomic bomb test in the Pacific."
