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".
