Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Northern, Utah.

I served in the military during the Vietnam War.

I worked for the Air Force, retiring in 2008.

I work part time for an auto parts store.

I love to do Genealogy research, which has brought me to Find A Grave. I like to help out in my spare time, and give something back.

For all requests for transfers, corrections, and additions please use the edit tab on the memorial.

Please feel free to use any photos for your genealogy.

Thank you, Richard

Note: The following was copied from SMSmith and should be practiced by all members of Find A Grave:

Putting more than one married name in the last name field (or sticking it in the maiden or middle name field) messes up searches and leads folks to create duplicates. I will only add one married name in the last name field and the other marriages and/or variant names will be noted in the bio area.

"My thanks to SMSmith"


Note: I do not recognize a memorial as being correct with more than one name in the last name field. That being said, if I have created a so-called duplicate because someone else has made an incorrect memorial I will refuse to delete mine!
I believe that there should be at least one memorial that is correct for the person.

Find A Grave Policy under "Submitting Information" the fifth item down is:
"What are your naming conventions". The topic of the last name states:

Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.

I saw that you allow others to use of your photos for their genealogy. Is it the same with newspaper clippings? Thanks.

Thank You
Thank you for making a memorial for my uncle, Marvin Jay Smith. I did not know until yesterday that he was gone, so I appreciate what you did.

You might want to clear my Edit ASAP for Joyce Francel Harrop Allen.

My friend Dee Purrington is going to ask you for a transfer of Francel to her management.

Do you know Harold F Keller's family?
My name is Andrew Keller. I noticed you added some information related to Harold Floyd Keller(1917-2013) who I think is my grandfather's brother. I don't know any relatives on my dad's side of the family and I am interested in finding out about them and getting in touch with them. do you know anyone in the Keller family?

Thank you.

RE: Caroline Magann
Hi Richard,

Please know that I was in no way criticizing your efforts. I truly appreciate all your efforts and the time you put in researching and adding to this site :) I know there are some contributors that feel differently than you and I do about adding death certificates. I figure it we make them neat, and unobtrusive, perhaps we can eliminate some of their objections :)

Thanks again!

Hi Richard,

You posted a death certificate on Caroline's memorial. Could I please get you to crop the margin's when you post these certificates. I do post dc's on my memorials but I always straighten, crop and adjust the text so that it is less obtrusive in appearance.

I appreciate your help!
