#genealogyphotoaday Day 17: #mygrandfather The first two pictures are of my paternal grandfather, Robert Peter Jaster. He was born in St. Louis in 1928 to Peter Paul Jaster and Marie Estelle Travis. He seems to be purely of Polish and Irish ancestry. Grandpa quit school after 8th grade and worked for PepsiCo until he retired. He died in 2001.
The last three pictures are of my maternal grandfather, Alan William Renner. He was born in St. Louis in 1941 to Herbert Charles Renner and Wilhelmina Frances Ennert, both from German and Polish families. Grandpa dropped out of high school as a sophomore and worked in the family greenhouses before working as a gardener for a country club until he retired.
