Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am Bob, 78 years old, living in the Armed Forces Retirement Home, Gulfport, Mississippi.
Currently in the Far East and due to return April 2018.
I only use my electric bicycle and public transportation. I retired from the United States Navy on Friday May 13, 1977. I have always thought of Friday the 13th as my lucky day, and it still is.
I grant permission to use my photographs in all respectful means.
In July 2016 I photographed a cemetery in Puntarenas, Costa Rica and posted them on Find A Grave, Cemetario Carita.
I add interments when I find them.
I finished photographing the Lord Ridge Cemetery. I was unable to get a complete listing from the City Council. If I had, I would have been able to tie in my photographs with the entire "population" of the cemetery. There would have been lots of photos of the headstones that would not be posted because about 90 percent are not available or has been damaged beyond decyphering. I am honored to have been able to post the memorial and headstone photograph of the "Father of his country, Belize" the Right Honorable George Cadle Price.
I am also happy to say that I have photographed every grave site at the US Soldiers' and Airmen's Home National Cemetery (up through October 2010) and the Battleground National Cemetery both in Washington, D.C.I have also Posted every grave site at St. Elizabeth's Hospital (West Campus). I photographed and posted all missing memorials and photos at Bethesda Cemetery, Camden, Arkansas. I did the same for Shiloh Cemetery, Union County, Arkansas. I have also photographed all the headstones at the Kanchanaburi War Memorial Cemetery Thailand (the POW Cemetery from the Thai Burma Railroad, Bridge on the River Kwai fame). I have photographed all of the headstones at Chungkai War Cemetery, another POW cemetery from the Thai Burma Railroad, Bridge on the River Kwai fame.
In December 2012, I photographed Labuan War Cemeteryand Labuan War Memorial, in Malaysia.
I photographed all of the headstones at Clark Cemetery, Philippines and have posted them, through December 2014.
One day I will be honored by my name being included on the Fallen Find-A-Grave Contributors Memorial.
I am also a War Graves contributor.

Thanks for transferring Cousin Tom's memorial to me. He was my dad's first cousin, his best friend when they were boys, and the last of his generation. He was truly a good man.
Thanks again,

RE: Duplicate Photos
It gives folks like you something to bitch about. I'm not going to look at every photo I posted to see if there are better ones but if you want to do that and let me know which ones are duplicates, and better than mine, I'll delete them.

GulfportBob, YOU are a kind and gracious man. My sincere thanks for all the photographing and posting that you have done. Thank you also for the memorial transfer of Bonnie Faye to my care. My cousin Becky will be so pleased with you. And we didn't even ask. It would be wonderful if everyone on Find-A-Grave were as kind, gracious, and generous as you are. There are certainly some mean people on this site! YOU are not one of them, sir. May the sun keeping shining on you!

I deleted mine, just a thought I have found Nancy doing post as unknown and later completing cemetery locations.
Her post was done 5 days before the obit was published.
When she does this it some times makes hers first but it leaves other dup post in place,

Ronald Percy Ferguson, Kanchanaburi War Cemetery
Thank you very much for this memorial as well as your truly immense efforts on behalf of others. Ronald is a distant cousin to me; I'll be doing edit requests to the current administrator to link him to his parents in Australia.
