Bio and Links
Bio Photo My late wife and I were first introduced to Find A Grave in 2009 after her sister had become a member. It wasn't long before we also became quite involved, especially after deciding to become photo volunteers. We soon became aware of one great benefit that we had not expected. We began to make many new friends from all parts of the country and we discovered a great many relatives, both living and deceased, that we didn't even know existed. During the first three years of our membership, it was our pleasure to visit a great many cemeteries in north Texas and southern Oklahoma, the area known as "Texoma", where we fulfilled as many photo requests as possible. We also photographed a great many other grave markers and applied them to memorials that lacked a photograph and in many cases we created memorials and did as much research as possible to honor that person. We also photographed and researched many cemeteries from other parts of the country during our retirement years when we had the opportunity to travel.

My wife, Phyllis Elaine, passed away in March, 2012. Since that time, I have continued my various activities with Find A Grave. I still enjoy doing volunteer photos for folks requesting them and do this mostly in the "Texoma" area where I live.

I created a Find A Grave memorial for my late wife and if there are folks who would care to view it, go to my list of virtual cemeteries at the right side of the page and click on the one bearing her name. Her biography tells the story of the life that we shared and of the wonderful wife and mother that she was to those of us who will always love her and cherish her memory.

Update: November 2015
During the past year or so, it has become increasingly difficult for me to fulfill photo requests, which often require a great deal of walking while searching for specific grave markers. I still very much enjoy doing this and will continue to do so in a limited way until my old back and legs force me to stop completely.

My age and physical limitations have caused me to feel some concern regarding the many Find A Grave memorials under my management. In order to assure that these memorials and any future memorials that I may create continue to be properly managed after my own incapacitation or death, I am arranging for them to be transferred to new management by a very capable Find A Grave member and genealogist.

Beginning October 6, 2015, I began transferring memorials to my good friend Richard K. Thompson of Fairfield, Iowa, member #46900770. Richard is a long time genealogist and has assisted me with my own genealogy efforts for several years. He has readily agreed to accept edits, photos, etc. for any of the memorials transfered into his care.

I intend to continue being active with Find A Grave for as long as I can. The years that I have engaged in these activities have been very enjoyable and rewarding. Although we almost never meet in person, I am thankful for "meeting" thousands of friends and relatives while engaged in these Find A Grave activities. My profile page will remain here just as it always has and I invite anyone interested to visit any of my Virtual Cemeteries. They will continue to be active. All memorials formerly under my care that have been transferred to Richard Thompson can still be seen in my "Transferred to Others" virtual cemetery.

H. Wayne Pedigo memorial update
I had a edit request for certain DOB/DOD information and addition of obituary transcription for memorial # 49967663. This is one of the transferred memorials to me, so thought you should know of these particular updates.

RE: Another Hello!
Hi Friend -

Yes, I've read your bio page and your wife's page and
that's how I knew you once lived in Las Vegas. I know
that you now live just up the road from me in Denison. I
would love to hear some stories on Las Vegas while you
lived there. I've been there many times and love the
climate and all the lights, sights and sounds! But I'm not
a gambler at heart even though I did give in a few times
and gambled because there's just no getting away from it.
Slots are everywhere!! I always have the best time there,
but not sure that I would live there. Other than Hoover
Dam, Laughlin and Primm, there's not many places to
visit unless you go out of state. I usually visit California
while I'm there just to get away and out of money! :-)
Anyway, Las Vegas is a fun city, for sure.

Have a great night up there in Denison. I have a good friend
on this site that is from Sherman. And I always love to
visit your beautiful wife. She looks like a very fun lady!

Take care and keep in touch. ~ Jean Ann

RE: Just A Hello!
Hello Lyle -

So nice to hear from you! We haven't messaged each
other in quite a while. Hope you are doing OK. Yes, I
am staying warm with the temps still high. I am so much
looking forward to Autumn and cooler weather. It's my
favorite time of year.
I hope you stay cool and out of the heat as much as
possible. But then I read that you lived in Las Vegas where
the temps can be as high as 115 or more. Still not as bad
as we have it here in TX due to the humidity. BTW, I love
Las Vegas!! I want to go back there soon.
Please feel free to message me anytime you would like. I
always enjoy hearing from you.

Stay cool and have a blessed night, my friend. ~ Jean Ann

RE: Donald Esker Photo
The reason why I did not add the photo to Joan's there is no death date on the memorial... Don't you want to wait until it is engraved on there?
