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.

"There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go." ~ Author Unknown

"Lest they be forgotten."

"May they live forever."

"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!"
