Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in grave hunting as an offshoot of my early interest in famous gunfighters of the Old West. As a teen, I visited the graves of people like Doc Holliday, Billy the Kid and Bat Masterson. When I discovered Find A Grave, I began entering the names of all the armed forces veterans buried in the Cedaredge, Colorado cemetery, a project that I finished in early 2004. I am a Vietnam veteran (U.S. Marine Corps, 1967-1970) and I retired in 2001 after a thirty year career in law enforcement. In 2005 I started a second career as a cemetery administrator for the National Cemetery Administration, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (see our Nationwide Gravesite Locator at I had the privilege of serving our Nation's veterans as director at several of our most historic national cemeteries, including Fort McPherson, Nebraska and Golden Gate and San Francisco national cemeteries in California. I retired in 2014 as the director at Los Angeles National Cemetery, also one of VA's most historic national cemeteries. Finding retirement not entirely suitable, I returned to work for the government in 2016 as a facility manager with the U.S. Department of Energy. My special interest on Find a Grave is ensuring that Old West lawmen and outlaws, especially frontier peace officers killed in the line of duty, are memorialized. I try and enter at least one or two veterans from each cemetery that I visit. I also enjoy genealogy and have located and entered the graves of several of my ancestors. Researching family names: Spencer, Pike, LeCrone, McDuffie.
