This is my first posting to the list. In any event here is the obit from my
great grandfather. This was written by my grandmothers hand, and this is
what was sent to the local newspaper. I will not edit what was written, and
will type it exactly as it was written. I do have some info as this line,
though I'd gladly like any other info. I can also share what I have found in
my searches so far.
