Prominent Find A Grave contributor and friend, with numerous photos to his credit or co-credit at the site. Interred within Forest Lawn (Glendale)'s Freedom Mausoleum, from which he was apparently chased by security guards during his last visit in life. His autobiography for Find A Grave reads "My fondness of cemeteries stretches way back to my childhood. I have always enjoyed walking along rows of headstones and reading the names, dates, and sentiments inscribed on them. Wondering how the person I am standing over died at the tender age of 20. Wondering what it must have been like for this person to live to the age of 104. It affords me a peace I cannot find elsewhere. Cemeteries are quiet, serene places where I can think and reflect. Then one day, I walked into none other than Stan Laurel of Laurel and Hardy fame. Afterwards, I began wondering if more celebrities were buried nearby. And so it began. It is an interesting way to kill time." The farewell message on his niche plaque reads, "The time came when the pain it took to stay became greater than the pain it took to go."
