Grandfather died :-( - Alex Belits
Grandfather died :-(
Two weeks ago, on January 1, my grandfather, Grigoriy Rafailovich Asnin died. I didn't post anything about that then, but I now I just want to say that he was a good person, and I am grateful for everything he did for me when I was a kid.

He didn't know his exact birthday, so the date in his birth certificate was January 1. He died exactly on his assumed birthday, 90, or more likely almost 90 years old.

Condolences. Man, born in 1917 ... quite a lot of things he saw. 24 at the start of WWII ...

Do you know what he did in the service?

In WWII he was in Vladivostok (on the Pacific coast of Russia) and China.

My condolences. Reminds me of my grandfather. It's hard to imagine what they saw and lived through. A world war, satellites, men on the moon, computers, medicine.
