Welcome! PLEASE CLICK ON ANY PICTURE TO ENTER THE GALLERY. FULL CAPTIONS ARE IN LADD'S WIFE CECI'S ONLINE MEMORIAL. This gallery is roughly in chronological order.

Wallace Knight "Ladd" Boardman is the son of Charles Knight Boardman (1882-1946) and Mabel Bowen Boardman (1883 - 1966). He is the paternal grandson of Charles Davis Boardman (b. 1854) and Ida May Ross (b. 1856).

Ladd married the Belle of the South in 1929, Myrtle Belle Hooper Wilson (1909 - 1985) but parted ways after less than a year with no children. He married Ida Mae "Impy" Pickering (1914 - 2002) in a beautiful garden wedding in 1934 and had one child, Sandra Jo Boardman Palm (1935 - ). Ladd's third marriage was to Cecile "Ceci" Georgia Kingman (1913 - 1982), and the pair became lifelong residents of Alhambra, CA. They are survived by their sons, George Kent (1944 - ) and Robert Keith (1947 - ). Grandchildren from both marriages include Sherrod Palm Shiveley (1963 - ), Bretton Douglas Palm (1965 - ), Trudy Boardman DeMott (1970 - ), Jon Kent Boardman (1973 - ), Brian Boardman (1978 - ) and Stacey Boardman Shea (1980 - ).
