"Trying to locate surviving Holcknecht family of Deceased father, Frank Holcknecht. (Rock Springs Wyoming, USA).
I am unable to locate Renzo Holcknecht from Trento and daughter of Nina Holcknecht from Trento."

the correct spelling would be HOLZKNECHT.
Holz (german) = wood
it´s a german name and means woodslave/woodcutter.
so name-orgin about "occupation".

do you mean surviving family in the Trentino, Italy or in USA?
117 hits in present italian phonebook. i know the name most from the provínce Bozen/Bolzano, but think there also some of the Province Trient/Trento (Trentino). postalcode for Trentino you have to look all postalcodes with 38 at begin! as example 17.) Holzknecht Alberto in 38011 CAVARENO:

"Wyoming -- emigrants from Val di Non and Valsugana settled at Cambria, Rocksprings, Reliance, and Superior. After work at the mines became scarse, many of them emigrated to northern Utah (Castle Gate and Ogden), where factory jobs were available."

Ellisisland has Holzknecht from Fondo/Val di Non:
