Bio and Links
I was born in Meridian, Mississippi home of David Ruffin(of The Temptations),Jimmie Rodgers (the Father of Country Music), Susan Akin (1986 Miss America), James E. Chaney ( Activist, one of the 3 civil rights workers killed in Mississippi, 1964), Paul Davis (Singer, most famous for song, "I Go Crazy"), and Hartley Peavey (Founder of Peavey Electronics, the largest supplier of musical instruments and amplifiers in the world).I grew up in Meridian, Ms and New York City, joined the U.S. Army and ended up in California after a tour of duty in Korea and Washington, DC. After my discharge I decided to stay in sunny California. I ended up working for the VA (Veteran's Administration) hospital and later the VA Cemetery. It is here where I became interested in cemeteries. I started working there not long after the burial of Dean Martin's son (Dean Paul Martin) who was killed in a military plane crash .Every since I've had this "hobby" of searching for the "rich & famous".

I stumbled across your pages looking for info. on Flip Wilson. I want to extend my sympathies for the loss of your mom at such a young age. I am a former smoker (quit 13+ years aogo), when I was 35. I can imagine how your mom stuggled with her addiction. The only way I was finally able to successfuly quit was by going to NA and working their program. They say that it is a worse addiction than heroin & I believe it. Even after all of these years, when I am really stressed out,I will still have cravings.
I will pray for you and your mom,

I read your bio and found it very interesting. My deepest condolences for your losses. My older brother Ronald C. Blackmon was murdered. I stumble across this site on accident, and found that the Dept of VA affairs had added my brother, grandmother and grandfather to find a grave. My brother served in the Navy and My Grandfather served in the United States Air Force. They all are in the same resting place Ft Sam National Cemetery. Take care and God Bless
