Etch Westgrin (1900-1979) was a member of the Flying Hellfish. He could possibly be Professor Frink's maternal grandfather. (If Professor Frink is 40 and his mother is in her 70s, Etch could be in his 90s if he was still alive.)


Etch served in the U.S. Army in Europe during World War Two, alongside Abraham Simpson. He died in a parade float accident in 1979, along with Arnie Gumble, Iggy Wiggum, Griff McDonald, and Sheldon Skinner.

Not much else is known about Etch except that he may like to write and/or draw a lot, as he is seen with a notepad and pencil. It is likely that he was his team's sniper since a sniper rifle is seen next to him. He is possibly Frink's mother's step father or dad or his dad changed his name at some point after the War.
