Relatives to Kenneth Raymond Downing Quincy, MA

Article by downinganna3

Trying to find relatives of my grandfather Kenneth Raymond Downing, resided in Quincy, MA. Passed in Colorado. Stated was Irish. Father named Raymond Downing and his mother Irene Julkka. I do believe he had some brothers. I know he went to military school and was in the Air force. He didn't really mention much else.
