  1. I AM THE DAUGHTER OF RONALD RICHARD GRENZIG. I AM ONE OF FIVE CHILDREN. HOW WOULD I GO ABOUT WRITING SOMETHING ABOUT MY FATHER’S REMARKABLE LIFE? I ALSO HAVE SOME OF THE STONES FROM THE COLLECTION OF JOHN A. GRENZIG JR. MY GRANDFATHER, WILLIAM GRENZIG, WAS QUITE THE ARTIST AND I HAVE FRAMED THESE OUTSTANDING WORKS OF ART HE DREW. IT LOOKS LIKE HE MAY HAVE BEEN TAKING CLASSES AS THERE ARE SOME NUDE DRAWINGS. PLEASE CONTACT ME AT MY EMAIL ADDRESS AS I REALLY WOULD ENJOY SHARING WHAT I HAVE. THANK YOU…. LINDA BUTLER, PA
