Bio Photo About Us:
I (Bruce)was born in RI and lived there the first 20 years of my life. I joined the USAF in 1978 and was stationed at Minot AFB ND. In 1980 I returned for a visit and married my wife Debbie(Tetrault of Providence RI) of now 34 years (May). We lived there for the next six years and started our family and all three of our kids were born in Minot ND. In Nov 1986 I was medically retired from the Air Force with a 100% service connected disability, and moved to Colorado Springs CO and raised our family there over the next nineteen years. When our children became of age and looked to start their own adult lives. Debbie and I had fell in Love through visits to Hawaii and felt we were in need of warmer weather than our homes (RI, ND, CO) of the past had to offer. So in 2004 we sold almost all we had and with little more than what we had on our back (and what $5000 would Ship (that was not much)). We set off to start life anew in Hawaii. We LOVE Hawaii!

Being retired and disabled, I fill request for Find-A-Grave here on the island of Oahu Hawaii at Punchbowl, National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, and the many National (Cenotaph) Memorials honoring our Servicemen that gave their lives from WWII to present. Because I have a 100% service connected disability myself when I get to fill a request I also like to do a little above and beyond for brother serviceman and their families and friends. Along with the photos I take I also do a GPS waypoint reading using an iPhone app and use this in helping families and friends find views of the grave area. I think this a powerful area of Find A Grave that most don't know about or don't use.
Edit Plot: add Latitude: Longitude:.

See this memorial for an example:

Find-A-Grave General Guidelines: The copyright of all photos posted to Find A Grave remains with the original submitter. No use of photos for any other website or personal use is given without prior consent of the original submitter.

SO, I guess I also give my consent , you may use any of the photos I have taken anyway you like. All I ask is that maybe adding the tag "photo by" if used it other than on the find-a-grave site would be a nice thing to add in return for the use.
Please Enjoy our photos and work.

Aloha from Hawaii

# 77749580 FYI
Fred's body was recovered and identified and buried in Lakeside Cemetery, Port Huron today, May 20, 2017. He is no longer buried in Hawaii. There is a video of the funeral procession on Fred-Mary Jones's facebook page. Mary is a distant relative of ours...that's why we knew about it. Helen

Hi, I am working on cleaning up Fairview Cemetery in Salida, Colorado. I have found a duplicate for Vernon Francis Knipp, above referenced Find A Grave #. The first Find A Grave was added in 2010 and your Find A Grave was added later. Could you please take a look and delete your Find A Grave is you agree. Thanks in advance.

His body was never identified and buried in a mass grave. Through DNA testing his remains are now going to be layed to rest with his parents in New Hampshire.

Sgt. Oscar L. Niece, Jr. - FAG #56126975
I am doing my wife's Gunter genealogy. She has a cousin "Oscar Lee Niece Jr." in her family history. He was killed in World War II in military service. Unfortunately that is all the information that is listed. This Oscar Niece just might be her cousin, but unconfirmed! Wondering if you might have additional information?

Your FAG Memorial #80569737
Hello, I would like to bring to your attention the above memorial that you added for my uncle, Walter Henry Sollie. You did a nice job, but it is a duplicate of his memorial which was added in 2010. The original Find A Grave memorial # is 56132170. Would you please remove your memorial, as the original one is more complete. Thank you, Iris Sollie Plowman

Hi, My name is Dennis Brown, I just noticed you have a duplicate Memorial of Cecil that I maintain.
However, I like yours better, Do you know how to merge memorials? I would still like to maintain since it is my grandmother's sisters son. #56114694
Thank you very much. Dennis Brown
