2 of 6 brothers to serve during WWII being honored in Williamston

Williamston — Two of six brothers who served during World War II are returning to their mid-Michigan hometown to be honored during a parade.

Frank and Andrew Engardio served in Europe at the height of the war. Their four brothers — John, Peter, Pedro and Leonard — also served. All six survived and came home.

Their parents, Sam and Mary Engardio, ran a Williamston store that sold fruit, confections, beer and wine.

They since have passed away, as have four of the brothers.

Frank and Andrew remain.

Frank is 95. He’s a former Ford Motor Co. employee who moved to California after retiring.

Andrew is a 91-year-old retired podiatrist who lives in Adrian.

The Lansing State Journal says the brothers plan to appear in Williamston’s Red Cedar Jubilee parade on Saturday.
