Ole Larson's Folks

Born on this day in 1915: Keith Millard Beechel, Thiel’s uncle, known affectionately as “Uncle Pinky.” Shown above with Thiel, not long before his death in 2013. I remember Pinky for his positive attitude and quirky sense of humor. He also enjoyed cooking; his most famous creation was “Polish luau,” a kind of sausage stew that he prepared in a (clean) garbage can(!) R.I.P., Pinky!
