hi
I knew your great great uncle quite well. I live in St. Maarten and our store was across the street from Tommy and Laura's Restaurant, called Portofino. They had the best pizza in town. We had many lunches there.
Tommy's car was always parked right in front. Tommy would sit in a big old peacock chair and tell us many stories of his very interesting life.
Laura his wife, stayed on in St. Maarten, for a good while after his death, but I don't know what eventually happened to her.
I'll try to ask around and see if anyoen on the island knows.
