About Frank Edward Kroetch

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! ...more info
