This is a photograph of my paternal grandfather, who we called Pops". I am so pleased to find this picture. My parents moved to Detroit after they married, but we visited my grandparents (paternal and fraternal) in the Copper Country every summer and considered it a second home. Our family will be making another "homecoming trip" this summer. My dad, also Joseph Christopher Andreini, was born at home in South Range, Mich. in 1917. He recently passed away in December, 2010, at age 93, preceded by his brother Geno and sisters Dolores "Koko" (Adams) and Elsie (Gianelli). I have four sisters and two brothers, the older of whom, Joe Jr., passed away suddenly of a stroke on March 5 of this year. My father, his brother Geno, and my brother Joe all graduated from MTU. My brother Michael attended, but I think he moved to the state of Washington and ended up finishing his degree in civil engineering there. My brother Joe graduated from MTU in 1968 with a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering. His obituary can be found in the Detroit Free Press online. Thank you for providing this beautiful photo and biographical information of my grandfather. "

• In my previous comment regarding Joseph Andreini, I meant to say that both my paternal and MAternal" grandparents lived in the Copper Country when I was growing up. When I am reunited with my own laptop computer, I will try to add some biographical information and photographs of my father, brothers, an aunt and an uncle, all of whom attended and/or graduated from MTU. -- Susan Andreini Headen"
