Details about Frank Edward Kroetch Add details

Dad was never baptized (as far as I know) and has no burial site because he was cremated and his ashes distributed between his wife and two daughters. He was a very smart man (with an IQ that tested between 165 and 185) and good looking - charismatic! He was a life-long entrepreneur, having attended the University of Washington (after serving in the Navy in World War Two) and graduating from San Jose State University. He lived in both California (where his daughters were born) and Washington (where he was born and died).

He was quite a human being and we all miss him every day!

I specifically recall visiting him every summer while I was a young boy - traveling from California to Washington. It was always so great to spend time with him at his home with the extended family.

you remember trying to find gold near the railroad tracks at his house? or digging clams with grandpa and ted?

I remember digging clams on the shores of the Puget Sound in Washington, but until you mentioned it (honestly!) I forgot about looking for gold on the railroad tracks! Why were we looking for gold on railroads? Did some fall of the trains during the gold rush?

LOL . . . no, just you being a kid. There was quartz along the tracks, with gold colored veins. You brought the rocks to grandpa and said that you found gold. He humored you and said that gold and quartz ARE found together!
