I was born and raised in KC MO. served during the Vietnam Era in the U.S. Navy. I've worked at many different types of jobs over the years but mostly in electronics. I have always been interested in old cemeteries and after running across Find a Grave became an avid "Graver". Most of my family think I'm bonkers but I have my wife and a brother and a daughter who have also become members! I spend most weekends traveling around central Missouri trying to locate small, older graveyards as well as getting photos for other members. I keep all my full sized photos on file in case someone wants them.Just e-mail me and I'll send them along.If you have bio info on anyone and want me to post it,e-mail me and I will post it. I do not add obits as per Find a Grave rules.PLEASE DO NOT ask me to post obits as a bio, rewrite as a bio and I will post.
It is best to not copy obituary notices from newspapers to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so. In general, obituaries in newspapers are submitted by the family. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, it should list the newspaper and date the obit was printed. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices from memorial records.
Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave.
