Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born on 18 September 1936 in Torrington, Litchfield County, Connecticut. I spent 4 years at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts followed by 4 years at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland graduating with the class of 1959. My work career was as an Instrumentation and Controls Engineer in many varying process industries such as mining, pulp and paper, power plants, food plants, plastics, etc. I retired in 2008 after about 4 years in the water and waste water industries doing programming, instrumentation calibration and plant commissioning. My family and I spent from 1971-1979 in Rhodesia and South Africa. I presently, and I expect permanently, live in Holladay, Utah on the outskirts of Salt Lake City. I have worked in Alaska, Russia, Germany, Canada, South Africa, Rhodesia and in many areas of the United States. I have four daughters, 8 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. My wife, Judy, and I have been married 53+ years. I am an avid genelogist having been involved in that avocation since 1968.

RE: Stella Frisbie Dall-Dundee Township Cemetery
Sorry, but I am not related. If you are and want the memorials in your name, I can transfer them to you. Just provide the Find A Grave #'s

I really can't express my gratitude for your generous contribution to my family research - all the gravestone photos for Thelma, Jay, Lillian, May E., Ernest, Thomas, Annie & Mayo L. Carroll from Holladay Memorial Park. The larger photos you forwarded are greatly appreciated as well. Thank you so very, very much!!!!

Willis, thank you so much for going out and locating the gravestone for my distant cousin, Thomas Carroll. It aids in my long-distance research from Maine! The photo is great and very much appreciated.
