Sam Barnaby

I interviewed my granddad. His name is Sam Barnaby. He was born on March 30, 1946. He is 57 years old. He was born in Campbellton, New Brunswick, but has lived in Listuguj most of his life. He has 7 children. They are Spenser, Fraser, Jim, Tanya, Derek, Mac and Samantha. He also has 4 grandchildren: Rosslyn, Kanyon, Khaliah and me. Maida, Percy, Mary, Julie, Leona, James, Donald, Robert and Gordon are his brothers and sisters.

My granddad has travelled and worked in Chicago, New York, New Jersey and British Columbia. He works as a foreman. He also likes watching boxing. His dad and mom were Lena and James. My granddad's favorite place is his brother's. When my granddad was growing you he didn't have a computer, a car or a bike. He had a big family.

I think I'm glad that he's my granddad. I love him very much. He has a good sense of humor and it wouldn't be the same if he didn't tease me or joke around.
