Daniel Pinna My grandfather, Frank Kroetch, was a great man. I know it is common for people to say this about their grandparents, but I truly believe had I not been related, I would still think the same.

Frank was an entrepreneur gifted with a brilliant mind. I will always hold him fondly in my mind.

Daniel Pinna 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.

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

Daniel Pinna 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?

Kathy Pinna 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!

Daniel Pinna Happy Birthday Grandpa. Today was like any other day, and I didn't remember that March 26th was when you were born, until your daughter reminded me. :)

You would have been 88 this year (2015). Thank you for such great memories while I was growing up and for always being 'around', even after death. We are proud of you too.
