Bio and Links
Bio Photo Taphophilia (a passion and enjoyment of cemeteries) has been my main hobby since the late 1970's when I was a junior in high school. I discovered that cemeteries in and around Los Angeles were the best places to hide from truant officers. It was in these adopted sanctuaries that I began to appreciate my surroundings: the grounds, the headstones, the architecture, the artwork and most importantly, the residents.

In October of 2010, I founded The Traveling Taphophiles, a group that sets out once a month to visit cemeteries. Our travels have taken us as far as New Orleans. I'm fortunate to have met others that share my hobby and to have forged some great friendships along the way.

Once photos have been posted, feel free to use them as you wish - photo credit isn't necessary.

Happy Graving ~

Louis DuMort

I miss Chris and Martha with all my heart.

Will they bury her next to her late husband?

Sonny, Kermit, and Justin

I think the first I offered was Warren Lowe at Midland. Midland is an unremarkable suburban crossroads, the small cemetery of less than 500. I stopped there yesterday for no particular reason. I noticed Kermit, then Sonny. Three in a small rural cemetery. I told my friend Shock and she related to me about Justin. Shock says a vehicle pulled in front of him on his beloved bike. Best always,


ps - check out tragic Oscar Andrade I noticed at Midland as well.

Sir John Hurt
Dear Louis

It has been confirmed that Sir John Hurt, died on January 25th, rather than the 27th, by his widow, Anwen and his agent, Charles McDonald. I have submitted the date change for this memorial.

Kindest regards

Religous Icons
Dear Mr. Dumont,

I have a question. Why do you allow some people with reigous icons to put theres but you remove others that you do not like?

Judith Liteky
I like your famous bios - they are very good. Mr Liteky's wife Judith Liteky died in 2016 but I cannot find a memorial for her. I've never done a famous bio so could you do one for her too? Thank you.
