Bio and Links
Bio Photo

I was born and raised in Terre Haute, Indiana, and joined the Air Force at an early age. After two careers (USAF and U.S. Capitol Police), two marriages (death and divorce) and wonderful children AND grandchildren, I completely retired and relocated to North Carolina. I enjoy searching the past..., for myself and others.

I have also enjoyed being a contributor to this excellent website. Although Father Time is "catching up, I still periodically visit cemeteries for my own purposes or upon request to photograph and add to graves from that visit. I feel that each memorial I create has a story to tell and will hopefully be found by a loved one. If my entries prove incorrect or incomplete, or you would prefer to replace with your own data, please let me know. I am always willing to make a change for the improvement of a memorial. I will also consider reasonable requests for transfer. Please use the EDIT tab on the applicable memorial(s).

PLEASE DO NOT PLACE A DEATH RECORD ON THE MEMORIALS THAT I MANAGE. If you feel that something pertinent is on the record that I have overlooked in the bio, send me an EDIT request.

PLEASE DO NOT PLACE MULTIPLE PHOTOS OF THE SAME MARKER, AREA, ETC., ON A MEMORIAL. Remember that only five slots are allocated for photographs and excessive photographs of one item may, regretfully, exclude the addition of personal photographs at a later date.

It would be nice to receive notice, via EDIT, when any photo is placed on a memorial that I maintain. Thanks in advance.

I do not display a list of Find A Grave Friends..., there are far too many. Rest assured, if you have helped me or I have helped you, then you ARE My Friend.

ADDENDUM: Photographs I have taken at burial locations may be used by others for any legitimate purpose (excluding reposting on other Find A Grave memorials). Hopefully, I would be given credit for the work. Please be aware that personal photographs of family, etc., may fall within the purview of copyright as stated in the Find A Grave guidelines.

Please feel free to view the memorials and the personal photographs I have posted, especially those of my deceased wife COLLEEN, my DAD, MOTHER and our extended family, including the Mother and Father of my second wife and her extended family.

I have deleted the duplicate. The second Laura Hutson is a different person, grave marker and date.

RE: re: Earl O. Key
I don't recall if I responded to this message or not. If not, please look again at Earl's page. I forgot to enter the footstone. It's there now.

RE: re; SSgt Collins, Sgt Bowen, et al.
You list as you wish but it does not reflect what is on the stone...they are going to my incorrect list that admin monitors. Thank you for service to our country!

RE: Duplicate Photograph Posting
Obviously, there is no good reason for me to intentionally post an exact duplicate of your photo. Perhaps, what may have happened was my computer was slow to load the picture that I duplicated. I really don't know how that happened but I am aware that I make mistakes. Sometimes I catch them and sometimes others tell me. I try to hurry when I add photos to memorials because there are so many that don't have them. I believe pictures of names and dates are important to families and researchers. Thank you for maintaining your memorials and notifying me of the errors and I apologize.
