Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi!

A lifelong resident of Salt Lake County, I was born at 5:57 p.m. on Tuesday, October 20, 1992 at Holy Cross Hospital (now Salt Lake Regional Medical Center) in the East Central neighborhood of Salt Lake City.

Raised in West Valley City, I currently reside in the Liberty Wells neighborhood of Salt Lake City and am a proud Salt Laker.

Family history research led me to discover Find A Grave one day back in August of 2006. I subsequently joined and have greatly enjoyed contributing here since. I feel honored and privileged to be able to help document and memorialize the lives of those who came before me as well as preserve their information for future generations. It is truly a labor of love for me.

When not doing genealogical research, I'm deeply involved in Democratic politics at the local and state levels. I also enjoy reading, writing (I currently serve as a reporter for Utah Political Capitol), and listening to '70s and '80s music.

Please let me know of any corrections or additions that need to be made to one of my memorials.

As for transfers, I don't subscribe to the four-generation rule. If I've added a memorial for one of your relatives or friends and you would like to manage it, please let me know and I will be more than happy to transfer the memorial to you.

If you have time, please leave flowers for my grandfather, Brent Curtis; my grandfather, Norm Gibbons; my grandmother, Gae Gibbons; my aunt, Jane Brandenburg; my uncle, Marc Curtis; and my cousin, Clair Harward

Barbara Pavich
What you did helped close a final chapter in my Aunt Lucretia's life. She was the second wife of Joe Pavich - Barbara was his first. When my aunt had dementia, our family could not locate her and find how she was doing. Since she had no children, and Barbara could not locate any of the nieces or nephews, Barbara through the kindness of her heart, became the manager for my aunt. Shortly after Lucretia's death, I found the listing online at the social security death index. After my cousin contacted Barbara, a box was sent containing photos and a few mementos of my aunt's. Barbara, again helped. I have wondered who this woman was that would be so caring of the second wife of her ex-husband. The photo you chose to include shows a woman who was truly beautiful inside. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you for all you do on find a grave. Giving so freely of yourself. Your time and your money so we strangers can so pictures an thing we would never see otherwise.I am a distant relative and would never have seen a photo if it wasnt for you. A picture of someone makes them feel so much more personal. I would like to know if you would allow me to use your picture on my family tree. I would give you and find a grave full credit if you allow me to use it. Thank you for taking the time to read this an I will be waiting for your replu Thank you no matter what you decide.
