Bio Photo Updated: September 2015

Chief Petty Officer, US Navy, retired.

Enjoying the fruits of my labors - children and grand children - to the best of my abilities.

Recently purchased an RV and traveling around North America.

If you have a problem with something I posted, please email me or click on suggest a correction instead of posting it on my contributor page. I will address the issue as quick as I possibly can.

The purpose in life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

One can tell the morals of a culture by the way they treat their dead. ~ Benjamin Franklin

To Err Is Human, To Correct Divine. If you come across any errors or have additions to the memorials I maintain, please let me know. I strive to provide accurate information and will be happy to make any changes necessary.

So many questions, yet, so few left to ask.


The wise man must remember that while he is a descendant of the past, he is a parent of the future. ~ Herbert Spencer

Our most treasured family heirlooms are our sweet family memories. ~ Unknown

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. ~ Anonymous

"There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go." ~ Author Unknown

"Lest they be forgotten."

"May they live forever."

"When an old person dies, a library burns..." African proverb


Life is not a journey to the grave, with the intention of arriving safely, in a well-preserved body. Rather to slide in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming.."WOW, that was a Great Ride!"

I have your obit on Mr. Futch - there is only a small amount to add. I can send it to you if you send me your email address. If you want an actual copy of the news clipping you would need to contact Yakima Herald-Republic at (509) 248-1251

Joshua Trueblood
I forgot this is a holiday weekend the office is closed. There is a kiosk that prints locations but there is only one Joshua located. There are unmarked around him so I don't have names. There is a Harold Clyde Trueblood a couple of sections over. DOD 7/26/2001.
Sorry for not being able to get the correct info.

Hazel L Trueblood # 151529622
Hi, sorry I had to decline the edits for Hazel L Trueblood, Find A Grave Memorial# 151529622. I don't think that Lily Vigie is her mother. There is a discrepancy over Hazel's birth year (1917 on headstone, 1919 on SSDI) but either way Lily would be at most 15 years old when Hazel was born and Lily and Ira didn't marry until Nov. 17, 1923 (date on their headstone). Hazel does not appear on the 1930 census with Ira and Lily. It's possible Ira is her father, but find-a-grave doesn't give me the option of approving half an edit. Would love any documentation so we can make the right links!

RE: Joshua Trueblood
Sorry for the wrong pictures. I will be back to the cemetery on Friday, I will check with the office. There is only one listed in the district database.

RE: Photo of J C Wiginton
I've check everywhere I know of but couldn't find his parents names. His stone was not near any other Wiginton's. It was next to Lina Hendrix. I hope you find the information you are looking for.
