Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a swimming pool contractor M-F and on most weekends I teach scuba diving lessons. I take photos above and below water.
My Grandmother is burried in Pacific Crest Cemetery and a Grandfather at Green Hills, both of these and Roosevelt Memorial Cemetery are very close to where I live so I don't mind going there to photograph headstones or markers for families.
I love the search for my ancestors and I'm sure you do too. I have been on for a few years now and really appreciate the few photos that I have, I think of my photos to the members here on "Find a Grave" as gifts to them and the generations to come to share about their families.
Unlike many who take photos for this web sites, I WANT you to use my photos with your family tree.
Take and enjoy - share with your family and friends. These photos I take are a small gift from me to you. They are YOUR family, not mine, they are "copyright free" so use them as you see fit.

Thank you very much for the photo of Iris and J. Kenneth Gambrel. I would never get to California and I appreciate the time and effort you put into getting this photo for me. Thanks again.

RE: Albert E. Birdsall Sr.
Walt .... I just sent you an email. Because you seem to be the one who created Albert's memorial, I can't think of a suggestion I'd have for contacting a possible someone.

RE: Westley Cerny
Westley was cremated and buried with his wife. He does not have a separate marker.

Thank you Walt for photos of grave markers for a long lost relative from my father's side of the family. Amos H Porter had been one of my elusive ancestors for years! A few years ago, I finally found where he had gone after leaving OH in the 1870's. Then it took me a couple years to find info on his death & now my search is complete with your contribution of photo of his grave stone & his wife's in Roosevelt Memorial Park, Gardena
Los Angeles County, California!

Thank you so very much for taking the time to do this!
