Claude Roy Eaton -- born on September 12, 1920, in Whiting, Indiana, to Verne H. and Viola Eaton -- was raised in Hammond at 6712 Arizona Avenue. After graduating from the local schools, he took a job in the steel mills, like his father. On October 13, 1942, Claude was inducted into the Army at Indianapolis, leaving for basic training shortly thereafter. On August 5, 1943, while on leave, he married Anna Mae Reder of Griffith, Indiana, and returned to duty. In January 1946, Claude returned from France as a staff sergeant, and resumed working at Inland Steel in East Chicago, while living in Hammond at the family home. He passed away in Hammond on March 2, 2000, and is buried in Schererville, Indiana. [Steve Glazer]
