Bio and Links
Bio Photo ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I was born and raised in Terre Haute, Indiana, and joined the Air Force at an early age. After two careers (USAF and U.S. Capitol Police), two marriages (death and divorce) and wonderful children AND grandchildren, I completely retired and relocated to North Carolina. I enjoy searching the past..., for myself and others.

I have also enjoyed being a contributor to this excellent website. Although Father Time is "catching up, I still periodically visit cemeteries for my own purposes or upon request to photograph and add to graves from that visit. I feel that each memorial I create has a story to tell and will hopefully be found by a loved one. If my entries prove incorrect or incomplete, or you would prefer to replace with your own data, please let me know. I am always willing to make a change for the improvement of a memorial. I will also consider reasonable requests for transfer. Please use the EDIT tab on the applicable memorial(s).

PLEASE DO NOT PLACE A DEATH RECORD ON THE MEMORIALS THAT I MANAGE. If you feel that something pertinent is on the record that I have overlooked in the bio, send me an EDIT request.

PLEASE DO NOT PLACE MULTIPLE PHOTOS OF THE SAME MARKER, AREA, ETC., ON A MEMORIAL. Remember that only five slots are allocated for photographs and excessive photographs of one item may, regretfully, exclude the addition of personal photographs at a later date.

It would be nice to receive notice, via EDIT, when any photo is placed on a memorial that I maintain. Thanks in advance.

I do not display a list of Find A Grave Friends..., there are far too many. Rest assured, if you have helped me or I have helped you, then you ARE My Friend.

ADDENDUM: Photographs I have taken at burial locations may be used by others for any legitimate purpose (excluding reposting on other Find A Grave memorials). Hopefully, I would be given credit for the work. Please be aware that personal photographs of family, etc., may fall within the purview of copyright as stated in the Find A Grave guidelines.

Please feel free to view the memorials and the personal photographs I have posted, especially those of my deceased wife COLLEEN, my DAD, MOTHER and our extended family, including the Mother and Father of my second wife and her extended family.

RE: USSAH National Cemetery Photographs
Those were extra photos I took while fulfilling a request at a nearby grave; I added them because the images were roughly 18X higher resolution than the existing photos added ten years ago. I've found that photos on this site degrade over time and thought the backups might be appreciated. I am aware of the photo limit, which didn't seem to be an issue for memorials with one marker image and no flowers. And of course, as in this case, I'm happy to remove any unwanted photos -- they're gone.

RE: re: James A Phillips
You are quite welcome. Fortunately, his wife's side is still pretty legible compared to his side.
that's about the only way I was able to find him. Even then his inscription barely shows in the photograph.

RE: re: John and Delma Waters (# 135541131 & # 135544228

I didn't know them, and I'm happy to transfer management to you.

My Dad and many relatives on his side were born and/or lived in Melrose, Iowa.

Have an awesome day,

RE: Transfer of Memorial # 173225920
Yes, I understand totally what this website is all about. I only ask for those of my blood and Donna is since we were little girls together! Thanks for creating her memorial.
