This is my grand mother and my great grandfather. I think this picture was took in Salzburg, Austria around 1943. I was wanting to know if anyone could tell me more about him or where to look for more information.

This is from his funeral in 1987 I think.

My grandmother never talked about her father to any of us when she was still living but I found this picture after her death. She moved to America to be with my grandfather after meeting him when he was stationed in Austria after the war.
