|Bio and Links|
I am Ronald Becker son of Robert and Josephine (Kline) Becker.|
I Live in Kendallville Indiana. I sometime travel in the NE Indiana area for my work. This allows me the time to explore the cemetery that I see in my travels.
I love to take photos of the stones and I find pleasure in the peace of the cemeteries.
Find a Grave is a great site; many members have helped me in my quest for information. More is need to be done to preserve the broken and downed headstones that are in most of the older cemetery.
If I have a memorial that you would like to have just ask me I will transfer most memorials, however the memorials of family and friends I do wish to keep.

I must say that I am shocked if what I believe is really true...
I was thinking about a friend I had while in the U.S. Air Force 50 years ago, Lee Parker. He was in my barracks on McConnell Air Force Base back in 1966. My room was next to his on the lower bay of our barracks that I believe was barracks 326.
I started thinking about the guys I served with way back then just today. One of my friends was Lee Parker. If I am talking about the same Lee Parker that I just found is buried in the Mount Pleasant Lutheran Cemetery...well, again, I am just totally shocked. The Lee I knew always had a guitar and played regularly in his room with another friend of ours. He always talked about his father owning a music store. He was quite good on the guitar. He and his friend called me into Lee's room one day and asked me to listen to something off his tape recorder. They asked me who I thought it was playing in the music. I told them whom I thought it to be and was surprsied when they said it was them, that they had recorded it there in the room. It was really good.
One last thing as I try to find if is the Lee Parker I knew...The Lee I knew had a bright red 1963 Chevy convertible. It was a fine looking ride, too. One day While Lee drove us around (me and another friend, Richard Allen "Smitty" Smith) Lee stopped at Base ops for a sandwich and left us in his car. When Lee went in, Smitty climbed into the driver's seat and staarted "dry shifting" the gear shift. It got hung up and when Lee came out to leave found that Smitty had caused a problem and he had trouble getting it to shift correctly. He had it back in working order in a short period of time and we went on about our day.
But, I am dumbfounded when I see a Lee Parker has passed in 2010 that I belive could be the Lee I knew all those years ago. I am saddened by this and I'm hoping you'll tell me that I am wrong, that this is not the Lee I knew that has passed. The Lee I knew was a nice and kind person. You wanted to be like him, to better than you were.

THIS MY PARENTS U DID NOT HAVE MY PERMISSION TO DO THIS
|Lisa R. Garrett||John Nusbaum Memorial# 41294815|
Noted that the obit with this entry gives place of birth as Canton Bern, Switzerland, but the place listed in the memorial is Raron, Switzerland. Raron is in Canton Valais so I was wondering where the Raron birthplace comes from? Hoping you have more information than the obit.

I found this obituary in my scrapbook from The Angola newspaper, The Herald Republican. Heather was in my class in school. She was one of the nicest people in my class. She was nice to me, when other children would make fun of me.

|stargazer||RE: Memorial # 341023110|
Note to self. Have SECOND cup of coffee in the morning before typing (or trying to type) ANYTHING!
Correct Memorial # is 56969245. I think the same spelling correction (Samual to Samuel) should also be made to his son at Memorial # 56969731.
Thanks for the fast response and I am really sorry about my idiot error. Have a great weekend!
|stargazer||Memorial # 341023110|
Would please correct the spelling of Samual to Samuel and the date of death from 09 May to 08 May.
To confirm the correct information, please review the image of the gravestone that is attached to this memorial.
