    Ted Gale was my uncle Rex Gale’s brother. We never met him. We new he was a cartoonist for the paper. As far as I know, he never attended any family gatherings, of which there were many. Rex Gale died in 1952 or 1953 of a massive heart attack at the age of about 53 or 54 in Brentwood, W.Los Angeles CA Ted Gale was only mentioned in passing around the family.
