Bio and Links
I was born in Mercer, MO in 1965. Most of my growing up was spent in Des Moines, IA. I graduated from Drake University and pursued graduate studies at Drake and The University of
Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences (UOMHS - [now Des Moines University]). I have worked in healthcare for most of my career. I am a Mason
(and attend funerals for members of that organization). I am involved in the local Episcopal church. My wife and I met nine years ago. We both have the eye condition nystagmus
(an involuntary oscilation of the eyes). We while I was doing some volunteer work for American Nystagmus Network, Inc.(ANN,Inc.).
You can visit its website at http// . My step-daughter is a very wonderful person who loves animails - especially the strange but necessary ones - reptiles.

Many of my extended family members died while I was young. That may be what piqued my interest in cemetaries. While in school, I used to tell my mother that after my parents' names I was going to list the name of a particular ceme-tery on my school's emergency contact sheet. That was due to the fact that most of my extended family was there. Before we met, both my wife frequented this site. That was because we each figured that we would never get to travel to a lot of the graves of famous people.
Thanks to the record for my great grandfather
The Hon. John Andrew Martin, an e-mail came to me from a WONDERFUL cousin I previosly did not know I had. So, THANK YOU Find A Grave !!!

Thank you for the lovely message you left on my Uncle's grave. I'm not sure he gets many visits these days, so it is nice to know that he is still remembered :)

Jeff, I am Kathy Lowe. While attending Drake, I had the privilege of working for your father at Service Photoprint and also at The Art Store during my Drake years (1968 through 1971). I had a great admiration for your father and his business practices. Years before, my mother was one of his orchestra students during the 1930's at North High School, Des Moines. I have fond memories of your father bursting into song and whistles periodically during the workday. His serious dedication, always balanced by his keen, dry humor was unsurpassed by anyone I have ever worked for since. I am now 63, and a retired art teacher from the North Kansas City School District. When I graduated from Drake, your father was instrumental in jumpstarting my career with an extrememly praising and articulate letter of reference. I believe you were five when your father proudly introduced you to me. Would love to hear from you!
