Gma & Gpa's house

My grandpa has been sick for awhile and passed away a few days ago in an assisted living center.  My cousin and I went over to his empty house to pick out some pictures to put in the funeral program, and I snapped a few pictures while I was there.  He designed this house back in the 70s...can you tell by the style?

This was when he was engaged to my grandma.  It is funny how neither of them are looking at the camera.  Yes, the wall is lime green in real life.  Green just happened to be his all time favorite color. 

His office with fine wood paneling on the walls. 

This light looks like it belongs in a castle...or their bedroom, either one. 

A random wall in the kitchen.  Crazy old school house intercom. 

Quite a messy sink in the garage.  The H and C are just in case you didn't know that Hot is always on the left and Cold is always on the right.  

My grandpa was obsessed with coke.  These next four pictures show a collection of all sorts of cans he has collected over many years from several countries.  This was just in one closet.  He had another collection in his office. 

Also, he liked to hunt.

Oh, and how did my grandpa obtain all of these autographs?  I guess when you work for McDonnell Douglas for 35 years you get hooked up.  He was quite in love with Marilyn...and his wife. 


  1. Wow, I didn't know any of this about him! Thanks for posting this. I want to come see those autographed pictures one day!

  2. Great photos. I didn't hear the news about your Grandpa--sorry to hear that.

  3. Love the picture of the crystal chandelier. Let me know if I can do anything for you.

  4. Sorry to hear about your Grandpa.

    Love you,


  5. For some reason I never saw this post. Love the photos. I especially love the coke cans and the fork and spoon on the wall like the grandparents from every body loves raymond. I didn't realize he had a mm signature. Wonder where that went :)
