    --  Find A Grave Memorial #37116139,

    There is a second memorial on Find a Grave, which includes his fullobituary, but lacks his birth date.  After I communicated with themanager of the following memorial to give her the birth date and referher to the other memorial, I found her memorial had disappeared.  Butthe obit had not appeared on the above memorial.  I am glad I capturedit before it disappeared.  In November 2014 I submitted the obituary,with the erroneous burial information removed, to the above remainingmemorial and it was added by the manager HBC.

    The mortuary marker for his grave is seen in a photo on the abovememorial.
