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.

Thanks Walt for your picture, unfortunately I can't tell if he was a 506PIR, 101st airborne (Band of Brother movie ) during the WW2 . I'm pretty certain he is the hero I look after , same name, same Birth year, same state ... If one day you find his obit could you contact me ?

Thank you so much for taking the photos of my great grand uncle and aunt's headstones. It's much appreciated since I live so far away:)

Thank you so much for the photo of Paul's tombstone. This makes my supposition clear that the original creator had mixed up two similar names. Very much appreciated.

Hello Walt,
Just wanted to pass along my thanks for the two flat-stone photos of Joe and Dave. You took two great shots! I can actually read the music engraved on Joe's marker. I truly appreciate your volunteer time and efforts to help make this happen.

RE: Photo requests
I actually have a total of 10 now. That is more than I've ever had at one time, since he joined this site. He obviously gets e-mail alerts on his phone and claims them instantly. I'm too busy for that.

Take care,
