Sad news in the Kircher family this week. Kaya’s great grandfather (my maternal grandfather) passed away last Sunday.
The things he was most proud of include serving in the US Navy, attending MIT, and assisting in the invention of the hovercraft with Charlie Fletcher.
He loved telling stories and would talk for as long as anyone around would listen. Sometimes longer 🙂
He was much loved and we are very sad to lose the Kircher family patriarch. Kaya got to meet him as a baby (I hardly recognize her in this picture though) – she brought him an MIT hat to win his heart forever. He will be missed.
