Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born August 29, 1943 in Powell, Wyoming. I joined the US Navy in 1963 and spent 2 years in Southeast Asia in the Philippines and Vietnam. I then attended the U of Colorado for a year and a half under the NESEP program and was then transfered to Europe for 4 years, stationed at Rota, Spain. After that I was sent to Washington D.C. for 4 years. At that time I retired and attended Central State University in Edmond, Oklahoma, where I attained a BS in Mortuary Science. I owned and operated two funeral homes, one in Moline, Kansas, and the other in Sedan, Kansas, for 26 years. I retired from the business in 2001. I am currently residing in Wichita, Kansas, and am an accountant for Wal Mart Corp.

I am married, the father of two daughters. I have traced my ancestry back several centuries and am still in the process of chasing down my brickwalls.

As a former funeral director, I find cemeteries fascinating and love to contemplate past lives and histories of the families there.


I am more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links but am curtailing (not stopping) transferring memorials due to growing misunderstanding of what Find A Grave is about by those discovering the site for the first time. The time members have put into their efforts working together and sharing information is not up for grabs based on same-name surname or lineage and I will not do any of these type of transfers.

Sorry for the previous message...I hit the wrong key. In addition to the shared marker for the parents, there is a marker for their child as well. I took a photo and can send it to you if you would like.

Transferring Memorial
Dear Del,

I am just a few years "new" to find a grave and am in the process of adding my family members to it. I want to sponsor my father's grave on find a grave and am also wondering if you would transfer his memorial to me so I can link his information to his parents' information. His information is as follows:

Donald A. Kirst - Died on 12/26/2008
Fort Snelling - #28397256

Thank you very much.

T. (Kirst) Mcg...

Dakota is not buried the the Old Porterville Cemetery. He is buried in Hilcreast Cemetery, and could you please change the location of his burial.

Random thought - I have information from various families regarding their daughter Helen. I have the name of her husband, and an online death certificate for her.

Family member say she was cremated and her ashes scattered on the High farm east of Derby.

Should I add a Memorial for her in the El Paso Cemetery ?
