Randy,

It's been a long time since I visited this message board and I can't recall if I had responded to your post. I'll assume not.

Seegar (my grandfaher) passed away Jan 26, 2002 in Navarre Florida at the age of 97. I could write a book about him, but here are a few quick things of note:

-- Married Margaret Ruth Fawcett of Pittsburgh, PA
-- Parents of 4 children and 16 grandchildren
-- Lifelong career as a newspaperman
-- General secretary of the Tri-State Fair in Superior Wisconsin for many years
-- Avid trout fisherman and especially loved Wisconsin's Brule River
-- Passionate about his Green Bay Packers
-- Edited the book "How To Fish From Top To Bottom" by Sid Gordon
-- Edited the book "Time In Many Places" by Nels Olson
-- A Christian gentleman of the Lutheran denomination

Unfortunately, I know very little about Elliot Nystrom. I heard he worked in the theatre (not as an actor). I would be interested to learn about him someday.

Best Regards!
