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.

Walt, I appreciate the time you took to add the photo for Charley Krause's grave marker, however the photo is not Charley's.

RE: Padgett Graves At Pacific Crest
That sounds interesting! Is it an updated findagrave app? Does it go my coordinates?

We had been doing about 12-20 requests ever week or week and a half or so - plus all the ones in mass graves area which we upload stock pictures of the sections for, so maybe 20-25. Anyhow, when we stopped they sort of piled up because we got frustrated with having to clean each grave because the maintenance crew there does not do their job well.

Padgett Graves At Pacific Crest
Hey Walt,

Looks like we both were claiming open requests at Pacific Crest at the same time. I see that you added a nice photo of the grave for Bert Padgett (1956). Elizabeth is on the same stone. There is an existing photo request for her - so seeing as how you have already completed the job, I cave removed my claim on that request so that you can fulfill it.

I have also removed my claim on all of the other'Padgett' surname requests.

Please inform me as to is there are any others that we claimed that you have already done the photographing for.

Please let me know when you get this.

Thank you Walt!
I really appreciate you posting 2 grave photos each for Anna M. and Aaron T. Potter to show they are adjacent. It's all one more clue in the big family puzzle.

Thank you very much for sharing your photos!

Check the name on the headstone that you have here.

Would it be possible for you to retake the picture of my Uncle's stone. I appreciate you taking a picture of it shortly after he passed. Thank you for all the pictures you have taken for the Find-a Grave website. Have a great week.
