After retiring as an advisor, he became an entrepreneur and started Crystal Communications where he served as President. He had many interests which included playing the guitar, hunting, archery, politics, cars, boats, traveling, his Harley Davidson and his biggest passion was the ocean. He obtained his captain's license and enjoyed boating for most of his adult life. He lived in West Palm Beach, FL for 15 years prior to moving to Columbus (Dublin). He had a lust for life and quite the sense of humor and quick to tell a joke. He is survived by his brother, Dennis (Kirti) Pinna who resides in New Zealand with his wife, Sky; and his youngest brother, Steve who lives in California with his wife, Kim and family. He spent the last 6 1/2 years in Columbus with his children, Colleen (Pinna) Mathews, married to Steve and his grandchildren, Emma, Connor, and Sophie, along with his daughter, Lindsay Pinna and her daughter, Morgan, and his son, Blake Pinna. Being close to his family meant the world to him. He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and sharing in their daily lives. There was a celebration of life for family and close friends on Feb. 18. Later the family will take his ashes to the ocean in FL. He will get the last laugh. Love you dad XOXO
