Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was raised in S/W Vermilion County, Illinois, and served in the U.S. Army from 1963-1966. After the military I worked sometime with Frasca Aviation (at that time located at the corner of Green and Neil Streets, Champaign). I retired from the Champaign Police Department in 1998, having served 30 years. My interest in local history, led to a collection of biographies and obituaries for a book I published on the local masonic lodge and city police department. These interests led to many treks through local and regional cemeteries. If you note any errors or changes neccessary in any of my entries, please feel use the edit tab on the memorial and send me the information. I will gladly answer any and all inquiries. I am interested in family names Godwin, Heubner, Reynolds and Buckles. Most were from south and west central Indiana. If you are a relative (within three generations)I will gladly transfer management of any of my entries, also through use of the edit tab on the memorial. A family member should maintain these and enter additional information.
