Bio and Links
Bio Photo Air Force brat, music critic at the Shreveport Times 1977-1991, military reporter there 1992-2012, local desk editor 2012-13 and from August through the end of October 2015 editorial page editor, at which time retired from Gannett. Now public information officer for the Caddo Parish Coroner and the Caddo Parish District Attorney. Co-author of a history of Barksdale Air Force Base and a book on legendary locals of Shreveport. Interest in genealogy since 1990, willing to visit Northwest Louisiana cemeteries. Fascinated by the stories of those in them, cognizant that people only pass from memory if we let them.

Unless there are historical or sentimental or research reasons disinclining me, I will transfer memorials upon request to children or grandchildren of those memorialized. More distant relationships will not guarantee transfer and are decided on a case-by-case basis. When available and with the permission of the copyright-holder (unless the work is more than 75 years old and thus in the public domain), I post news stories and obits associated with the deaths and am not responsible for the manner of death of a loved one -- suicide or murder for example -- or the public attention it may have garnered at the time. You cannot change history; it changes us.

A high school friend attended the above named individual's memorial services and mentioned how really nice it was. My question, as I see you created an memorial on Find A Grave & linked him with his parents. I'm asking you instead of F.A.G.'s adm, because I looked at all the obits in my area, and seems like 4 out of 6 will be cremated...but the obits don't say that..."memorial services will be held at such & such place". Do we created a memorial for these folks? I was thinking, if we don't, the folks will be lost forever. Thanks for any guidance you suggest.

RE: Wilkerson
I had this happen to me also. I think if you bring it to their attention (or actually AJ), they will correct it. I Suppose I'm to blame, but he did deserve the 'famous' status.

Thank you!

Would you mind if I transfer 3 memorials to you, the parents and brother of James DeBardeleben (#136722897)? If not, that's okay.

Thank you so much for the pics and obits you've posted for the McAneny's at Forrest Park East Cemetery. I very much appreciate all your efforts. I was wondering if it would be okay to post your pics to my online tree, with credit of course. Thank you for considering my request and again for your work for F.A.G.

Hi John,
I am working on a profile of Rose Long on WikiTree. Could I have your permission to use the photo of her headstone on the profile?
