Richard Rozakis was born in Somerville, MA during the depression years. As he grew up in the neighborhood where George Dilboy lived, hearing stories from his parents about George Dilboy and representing the family at ceremonies honoring George Dilboy, he developed a lifelong interest in the family hero. After the family relocated to San Francisco, CA there were no official ceremonies on the West Coast but his interest continued. He served in the Korean War, and after discharge became a lifetime member of George Dilboy VFW Post #529 in his hometown of Somerville, MA. He was employed in the wholesale beverage industry in San Francisco for forty years. After moving his young family to San Carlos, he was active in the local PTA fundraiser “Chicken’s Ball” and his Masonic lodge. After retirement he researched his family tree and decided to write the George Dilboy Story. He lives in San Carlos, CA with his wife. His two children and their families live nearby and have been very helpful in his research.
