I didn’t find any obituary…
The real sissy.
Finn’s maternal grandfather was named Michael John Crowley.
Can’t find anything about his mother’s side, other than her brother’s wedding announcement. His grandparents lived in Homewood, IL at the time (1968).
I don’t know whether to consider him handsome or unattractive.
His mother’s name is Kate Claire Crowley and she’s a college professor at USC. I don’t know about her ethnicity, but Crowley is an Irish surname.
