Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born, raised, and educated in Texas; graduated from high school in 1955, served in the U.S. Navy, worked for the Virginia Employment Commission in Portsmouth, Virginia, the Baltimore City Police Department in Maryland, and finally, The Methodist Hospital (now named Houston Methodist) in Houston. After 20 years at the hospital, I retired and moved back to my hometown.

Other than my own family members, I'm not related to any of those I enter on Find A Grave and I'm unable to provide any further information about my entries except what was in an obituary or what I've researched.


Please do not put Death Certificate photos on any of my memorials. I appreciate your research; however, the information on death certificates is not always accurate and, the COD doesn't need to be seen.

Please use the Edit tab which is at the top upper right side on each memorial, to correct names, dates, place of birth and/or death, add parents and/or spouses, and plot information.

To request transfers, send notification of dupes, or additional bio information, please, use the Suggest a Correction (SAC).

DO NOT use the public message (PM) for transfer requests as they will be ignored.


A big thanks to all who have visited and left flowers and notes for any of my entries, including my family members and my fur babies. Thanks also to those who've sponsored several of my entries. It is very much appreciated.

Thank you so much for putting my daddy on this site. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. Still trying to accept he is really gone. Thank you.

Thank you for the memorial of Betty Jo Chambers. Could you tell me the source of the obituary printed on her page? I need the name & date of the newspaper. Thanks so much.

Hi Ruth -
Wondering if you are related to the Whatley Family - would you happen to be named Jackie Ruth Gryder (originally) and have a sister by the name of Marianne Gryder? Parents would have been Jack and Mary Gryder...

I am in touch with Marianne but have not been able to locate Ruth.

Thanks in advance for your response.
