The Days Gone By: An Autobiography of Richard Altenhoff Sr. as Written by Himself
With the support of my three children, Christie, Tammy and Richard jr. and further encouragement from my niece Debbie and nephew Anthony I was finally able to finish this book. This is a true life story that contains humor, violence, and tragedy & heartbreak, stories of what it was really like to grow up in a 1950's small town. This totally non-fiction book is entertaining as well as sad. I told it as I remembered it, and wrote it exactly as it happened. I am now living in Crystal Lake, Il. and am a proud grandfather of 6 girls and 3 boys and cannot wait for them to read this.
