They Grew Up in Oakmont

 When Frank was born, his family lived in this house in Oakmont, Pennsylvania. Earlier this month we went there with his siblings. It's a charming town northeast of Pittsburgh. You may have heard of the country club that shares it's name for the U.S. Open has been held there numerous times.

The last photo shows the second house where Frank lived. His parents had it built. His father worked for Edgewater Steel, which has since been closed and the buildings removed.

No one in his family lives in Oakmont now, although his brother still lives in Western Pennsylvania.


  1. nice to return to 'home base' now and then.

  2. It's interesting to visit places that once were home and relive some old memories.
