Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Ogden, Utah.

I served in the Navy for 4 years as a sonarman (1966-1970), Three of those years were aboard the destroyer: USS Blue (DD-744).

I worked civil service for Hill Air Force Base, retiring after 42 years.

I work part time for Napa Auto Parts.

I love to do Genealogy research, which has brought me to Find A Grave. I like to help out in my spare time, and give something back.

Besides "Ross", my extended family include the names of Ferry, McCracken, Cowger, Bovell, Stafford, Stokesberry, and Drenner on my father's side. Miller, Rees, Saunders, Vaughn, Hill, Merrel/Merrill, Phillips, and Williams on my mother's side to name a few.

For all requests for transfers, corrections, and additions please use the edit tab on the memorial.
Thank you, Richard

RE: LaVor Bowden
You look pretty Savvy, I really Don't think you need instructions on how to make a correction. You do good work, I run across it all the time.

RE: Elfido Vigil
It's okay that I deleted my memorial of Elfido Vigil. I just posted my stone photo, to the memorial you established. The thing that bothers me is that his son, Corp Henry Orlando Vigil, 106024 (that was killed in Vietnam) is buried in the Clearfield cemetery all by himself. I wonder if Henry is really buried in the Clearfield cemetery?

Hi again,
Boy are you on the ball. Good to see your name with one another of my family names, especially when I knew Vivian. She worked for me at the Base.

RE: Charles Hainline
Thank you so much for adding the info to Charles & Valetta Glaze Hainline.
I just found a newspaper clipping from Filer, Twin Falls, Idaho where Charles & his parents lived. Apparently Charles was married & divorced before he married Valetta Glaze. I have not been able to find any information on Grace Blaski.

Here is what it says. You can choose what to do with it.

"Marriage of Son
Filer, Oct 30--Mr. & Mrs. Jesse Hainline annouce the marriage of their son, Charles Hainline, to Miss Grace Blaski, at Alameda, Calif. Sept 21.

Mr. Hainline is assistant surgeon at the Alameda Naval Base Hospital. They will make their home at
