Bio Photo Updated: April 2016
Chief Petty Officer, US Navy, retired.

Enjoying the fruits of my labors - children and grand children - to the best of my abilities.

Recently purchased an RV and traveling around North America. Currently, my favorite bumper sticker is "My grandchildren are cuter than yours"

If you have a problem with something I posted, please email me or click on suggest a correction instead of posting it on my contributor page. I will address the issue as quick as I possibly can.

If you would like a transfer, I do not follow FAG transfer guidelines, so feel free to ask. But if they are a relative of mine, let me know how you are related and we will figure it out from there!

The purpose in life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

One can tell the morals of a culture by the way they treat their dead. ~ Benjamin Franklin

To Err Is Human, To Correct Divine. If you come across any errors or have additions to the memorials I maintain, please let me know. I strive to provide accurate information and will be happy to make any changes necessary, or transfer them over to your care.


The wise man must remember that while he is a descendant of the past, he is a parent of the future. ~ Herbert Spencer

Our most treasured family heirlooms are our sweet family memories. ~ Unknown

Remeber and learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.

"When an old person dies, a library burns..." African proverb


Life is not a journey to the grave, with the intention of arriving safely, in a well-preserved body. Rather to slide in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming.."WOW, that was a Great Ride!"

Chapel Hill Cemetery
I believe that this memorial, Memorial# 132921213, in Chapel Hill Cemetery in Baca County Colorado is in the wrong "Chapel Hill Cemetery" because as far as I know there have been no new burials there for fifty years. It is not maintained, and there is not even a road to it any more. You have to drive through a pasture or a field to get to it.

From the info on the page it is "Interment private family.Chapel Hill Cemetery 6601 South Colorado Boulevard Centennial Colorado 80121 "

RE: Rock Creek Cemetery Section N
Great job!

When you get a chance could you delete this memorial Find A Grave Memorial# 168800128? It is a duplicate of Find A Grave Memorial# 102418436.

Thank you!

Great - we'll just keep plugging along!

On another note, have you had a chance to process all the edits from the last round of pics? There were a lot so probably will take you some time.

Thanks for all your help!

Rock Creek Cemetery Section N
Hi there-

How far beyond lot 70 have you gone with memorials?

I am headed there today to get some pics. I'll probably photograph 71-80 or more if it can fit on my phone.

Hope you are well!

Hi, I just realized that I created a duplicate which I did not intend to do. It is the above memorial, I will delete it and go out and retake the photo for Charles L. Sperry and post on the correct and first memorial.
Sorry and thanks Sue

Good to be back!

I was at RC fulfilling photo requests today. I'll try and upload the remainder of Section N by the end of the week.

Hope all is well with you!
