|Bio and Links|
I welcome any additions, family links, and corrections, especially from anyone who posts a photo of the person memorialized! Pls don't post a picture of a headstone, unless at the time you took the picture you had cleaned the headstone and placed flowers next to it.|
Simply click on the "Edit" tab at the top right of the memorial, and then click on the "Suggest a correction" link to send suggestions or request transfers.
You don't need to ask my permission to use any of the photos. Use any and all that you need.
Most of the information I've included in memorials I obtained in my family (Simmons, Bowden, Allwardt, Fowler and Alderson) historical records, searching Ancestry.com, and in newspaper obituaries which I found in the Meriam Library at Chico State University.
I make mistakes. If I've included information or a picture in a memorial which you disagree with, please let me know.
I was raised in the northern California town of Chico in the 1960s and early 70s. Graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point. Served in the United States Army for 27 years until retiring from the Army in 2003. My wife and I have three children and a Golden Retriever blood hound mix.
