Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello everyone,

I have been tracing my family roots for many years now and am grateful each time I find another link or family member.

I care about families and helping. If I have a loved one of yours and you would like that person transferred, please use the edit button (upper right hand side) and tell me how you are related and we'll go from there.

Please do NOT post death certificates on any of my memorials!

Also, if you leave an inappropriate message here, I will delete it without hesitation. I do not believe in anyone having the right to leave messages that are negative and nor would I do so on anyone else's profile page.

Any photographs I take of headstones are free to use EXCEPT for profit.

Also, if I do make a mistake and duplicate someone's memorial, I will absolutely remove it. All I ask is for you to be polite about it. I'm volunteering here same as you all are and everyone makes mistakes; none of us are perfect, only the Good Lord himself and his son, Jesus.

Could you please add the following to the bio field, I requested via the edit button about a month ago, thanks so much!

Arnold Herbert Herb Hammar, age 89, passed away peacefully at Hedrick Medical Center in Chillicothe, Missouri on September 7, 2014, after a battle with kidney failure. Arnold was born on August 3, 1925, in Concord, NH.He was preceded in death by his wife, Beverly Ann, after 62 years of marriage. He was also preceded in death by his parents, Ernest & Loretta Hammar; three sons: Johnny, Neil and Ronald as well as a grandson, Matthew Hammar. Mr. Hammar is survived by two sons, Arnold Harry Hammar of Mesquite, TX, and Rev. Wayne Lee Hammar of Carrollton, MO; twelve grandchildren; nineteen great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren

Arnold and Beverly were childhood sweethearts in Concord, NH and were married on November 6, 1943, in Des Moines, IA. They moved to Clovis, NM after WWII. He was a First Lieutenant of the Army Air Corps during WWII as a bomber pilot. He worked as a parts-manager for the International Harvester dealership: McGeehee Truck Company in Clovis, NM for many years before purchasing and managing Smyth Auto Supply in Clovis. He visited with customers and friends at the store discussing all of the worlds news as well as getting updated on Clovis news. He prided himself in having, or knowing where to get, International Harvester truck parts. He enjoyed aeronautical books and magazines as well as magazines for vintage autos & trucks. He was a member of the Portales, NM Auto Club along with his grandson, Eric Hammar. He had restored several International pick-up trucks, Travelalls and Scouts, enjoyed showing them at car shows where he won several awards, driving them in parades and even had the opportunity to drive his International Travelall in a movie about a girls basketball team. He and Beverly attended many Army Air Corps reunions in several states. Arnold enjoyed being a member of a Clovis airplane club that builds small airplanes. Arnold was a kind and giving man. He was a member of First Christian Church of Clovis, NM for many years. He transferred his membership to First Christian Church in Carrollton, MO in July of 2013. He lived with his son Arnold Harry Hammar for two years in Norman, OK. He moved to Carrollton, MO in July of 2013, to be near his son, Rev. Wayne Hammar, pastor of Carrollton First Christian Church.

Memorial services will be conducted by Rev. Jon Forrest on September 20, 2014 at 10:00 am at First Christian Church of Clovis, NM.

State change in Obit.
Hi Tricia, I was totally surprised when this popped up while I was doing genealogy on Ancestry. I appreciate the work that you are doing and that of so many others all over the US and other places. I only have one request if possible. After my aunt Elizabeth Sturm's name could you please change the state from Ark. to OK. Three of my grandmother Nellie's and grandpa Michael's daughters married three brothers with the last name of Sturm! There are 10 first double cousins. This has been fun for the most part but in certain situations it has led to confusion on the part of other people who aren't in the know. LOL Thank you so very much. Take care. Rachel Sturm

Returned memorial
Hello Tricia,
Thank you so very much for your help and understanding in transferring back to me the memorial I created for
Nellie Wilson Brown Nuckolls # 110984513
I think it is obvious that I work diligently on the memorials I create and was very disappointed to see it taken from me for a reason I still do not understand.
With regards and tappreciation,

Herold Ruppright
Hi, I am the niece of Herold through his half-brother, Ronald (Bud) Beach. I don't know if his obituary was written as you have typed it in his memorial but his brother, Raybern, also had the last name Ruppright and there was a younger brother, Norris Beach, that also survived him. Unfortunately, Norris passed in MAR 1999, Larry in NOV 1999, Raybern in MAR 2000 and June (Ruppright) Anderson passed in OCT 2010. I hope this adds to your own records if you are a relative. Thanks! Tammy
