Bio Photo I am a retired Royal Navy Vet and UK Police Officer now living in Pueblo Colorado. I am retired and needed a project to keep my mind active so started with FAG initially in a small way. I enter daily new memorials from the Pueblo Colorado Area and am creating a file of Military Vets in the Special Collection at the Pueblo Library.
I work with a number of local FAG members who I am very grateful for their help. We have a good team of volunteers in the Pueblo area and the recording of local cemeteries has been spectacular over the last 3 or 4 years.
We are all human and have our weaknesses so please don't be rude to us we will help as much as we can as we can. For those who look at numbers of memorials created against numbers managed please don't be judge mental on occasions we have members who have to downsize their holdings and rather than surrender them to FAG prefer to transfer them to other members, I myself have collected a number of memorials this way and I treat all the memorials as if they were always mine and honor and respect the memory of the ones who have gone before us. As a final remark if at first I do not respond to a query or question please try again the system is not flawless and sometimes messages go astray I do not ignore people (if you upset me I will tell you politely) then work with you. Have a great day and for those looking for lost relatives keep checking we are adding them as fast as we can.

CHIEFTAIN OBITUARY Veteran SSGT Hyrum Anderson Mead, Sr. #71072185
This isn't my Memorial or yours, but here is the Pueblo Chieftain Obituary:

Mead Sr., Hyrum Anderson
Published: January 18, 2017:

Hyrum Anderson Mead Sr. beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, passed away of natural causes, Jan. 12, 2017, in Rye, Colo.
He was 96 1/2 years of age. Hyrum was born July 12, 1920, near Rye, Colo., the area where his father was born and two of his great-grandparents and grandfather are buried. He was the fifth of seven children born to Enoch Roland and Sarah (Anderson) Mead. His brothers and sisters were Enoch Roland II, Hazel Leone (Atterberry), James Joseph, Ramah William, David Crockett and Jessie Viola (Moore) Mead. Hyrum lived near Rye and in Pueblo and surrounding regions until he was 14, when his father applied for a homestead of 320 acres along Pass Creek 20 miles southwest of Gardner, Colo. Hyrum and his younger brother, David fenced the homestead and built a substantial home for their family. He met Opal Estella Jarrell at Gardner High School. They were married Dec. 26, 1941, and later sealed in the Logan Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Married for 63 years, they had six children, 22 grandchildren and 38 great-grandchildren. Opal had a debilitating stroke 17 years before her death in 2004, and Hyrum lovingly cared for her in their home until her death. Hyrum became a staff sergeant in U.S. Army during World War II. In Europe he fought in the second wave of the Battle of the Bulge and then served in Japan. The 97th Infantry Division in which he served became the most traveled division in the history of the U.S. Army. Hyrum earned a degree from Pueblo College and spent 35 years of his career employed by the state maintaining refrigeration and air conditioning equipment at the Colorado State Hospital. His many accomplishments include inventions used in servicing commercial air conditioning systems. In 1957, Hyrumís family moved to Rye where he and Opal were instrumental in the establishment of a branch of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The congregation for which Hyrum served as its first Branch President for seven years has since grown into a thriving Ward housed in a beautiful chapel. Hyrum and Opal fulfilled many callings for their church, including Hyrumís calling as a member of a stake high council. Hyrum is survived by his children, Hyrum Anderson (Rosemary) Mead Jr., North Salt Lake, Utah, Colleen Joy (David) Evensen, Shelley, Idaho, Delaine Joyce Shifflet, Rye, Colo., Nola Jean (Reid) Swenson, Salt Lake City, Utah and Carl Wayne (Patricia ďPennyĒ) Mead, Kaysville, Utah. He was preceded in death by his parents; all of his siblings; daughter, Elaine Gail Mead; grandson, Derick Anders Shifflet; and son-in-law, Robert Kent Shifflet. Funeral service will be held at noon Friday, Jan. 20, in the Rye Ward chapel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The viewing will be from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. prior to the funeral. Interment will be at the Gardner Cemetery in Gardner, Colo. The family expresses its deep appreciation to Hyrumís daughter, Delaine Shiff-let, for her extraordinary service in caring for him during the final years of his life. Online condolences,

RE: Fay Kastelic
Hello Vaughan,

Thank you for the note. Odd she is not in the cemetery records. Her husband (#111873299 Plot: 71 113 4) and son (#57713074 Plot: 71-113-3) are both buried there and all three appear on the headstone. Seems she should be in 71 113 2 or 71 113 5.

Fay is the aunt to my daughter's mother-in-law. Fay was a twin. Her twin, Gay, is her MIL's mother. I have no reason to believe that she is not buried there, but I will verify this with the immediate family.
