Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired Radiological Engineer and a Electronics Technician Chief-ETC(SW)USN-RET. Past and present hobbies are Skydiving, Motorcycle riding - Veterans, Masonic and American Legion riders, Pistol-Rifle-Bow hunting, Genealogy, Photography and racing R/C model cars with my granddaughter.

Folks my photos are for anyone to use as long as it's not for profit. These are your family and friends. I'm just thankful that I can help but a credit would be nice. If you need the original image just contact me.

Speaking of photos I've seen some really poor ones. I don't follow their idea for a photo size as it's to small to look at, if you want to blow it up to see something. I use a Panasonic Lumix pocket "CAMERA". I crop and adjust them for brightness and contrast using Elements and my final size is approx. 1761x1000 at about 350kb file size. I carry a small brush and shovel an remove anything growing near it. If in doubt I go with an without flash an pick the best to start with. It's a one shot deal folks give them the best you can an be proud of it. Check out, Granny, #97607760.

Another thing I do at the grave site is record the GPS coordinates. I use a Garmin etrex 10. I use, to convert the numbers for F-A-G format. I put the Plot information and coordinates in the notes. Then the grave can be viewed from the satellites.

I also don't have a lot of memorials an that's because I'll give them away as fast as I can. I DO NOT believe in their relationship recommendation. If their your family, friends, neighbors or shipmates it's yours as long as you treat them respectfully and it's not my family. I'm surprised that there not handing out bronze, silver and gold headstones annually for the biggest (head)stone hunters.

Live long and prosper.

Talk at me later,
Bob C.
Tucson, AZ.

Holy Hope
Thank you adding the fine photos and location information for Bishops Granjon and Green at Holy Hope. I appreciate seeing their grave markers. I am happy to see you have also claimed Msgr. Gerard, and hopefully his gravesite can be found as well. Thanks again, Chris.

RE: Missing headstones
Thanks Bob, I knew they were working on this! I am so happy! I will bring them what I have on the veterans with missing headstones, and get the other necessary paperwork so we can get them marked.

RE: Jack Perkins
Thank you. I should have got with you sooner. Just kept forgetting to! Thanks again for your help in finding his grave. I just wish my mom had lived long enough to see his headstone. She did not like that he didn't have one.

Hi Bob,

I had a headstone set for my grandfather over a year ago. Would you remove your information on his grave location and no headstone please. Thank you for doing all of that. It was a help in getting the stone set.

Thank you so much Bob for your prompt and professional attention to this matter. The GPS coordinates and the location are tremendously helpful in view of the fact that there is no headstone. I find that sad when he served our country so well. Wishing you the very best!
