Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born August 29, 1943 in Powell, Wyoming. I joined the US Navy in 1963 and spent 2 years in Southeast Asia in the Philippines and Vietnam. I then attended the U of Colorado for a year and a half under the NESEP program and was then transfered to Europe for 4 years, stationed at Rota, Spain. After that I was sent to Washington D.C. for 4 years. At that time I retired and attended Central State University in Edmond, Oklahoma, where I attained a BS in Mortuary Science. I owned and operated two funeral homes, one in Moline, Kansas, and the other in Sedan, Kansas, for 26 years. I retired from the business in 2001. I am currently residing in Wichita, Kansas, and am an accountant for Wal Mart Corp.

I am married, the father of two daughters. I have traced my ancestry back several centuries and am still in the process of chasing down my brickwalls.

As a former funeral director, I find cemeteries fascinating and love to contemplate past lives and histories of the families there.


I am more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links but am curtailing (not stopping) transferring memorials due to growing misunderstanding of what Find A Grave is about by those discovering the site for the first time. The time members have put into their efforts working together and sharing information is not up for grabs based on same-name surname or lineage and I will not do any of these type of transfers.

RE: Mary Allen Memorial
My apologies. I was too quick and not paying enough attention to detail.

Mary Allen Memorial
Good Morning - I was looking through some information this morning and saw that you have two memorials for the same person. Her name is Mary Allen and the two Memorial #'s are 38302551 and 38302575.

You created a memorial for Lora Ella Carter Satterlee, 19776414. Lora is my 2g grandmother. Would it be possible for you to connect her to her father, Abraham C. Carter, 43116768?

Thank you.

If it makes any difference, James died as an infant so, I'm a probably the closest relative as he has in this world. Thanks

Hi Del,

Thank you for adding my Great-Uncle James' memorial 14822109. I understand your position on transferring memorials. I currently manage James' parents (my great-great grandparents) and most of his siblings (the one's I found so far) including my grandfather Oliver. If you feel inclined to transfer his memorial to me I would be obliged. If not, that's OK too. My member number is 47505435.

Thank you for all your work on this site.
