I stumbled across this site and thought "Wow, could my great grandfather be on here??" Lo and behold, here you are. You were taken even before my Daddy, your grandson Larry Ward, was even born. My grandmother Opal was your daughter and she told many stories about you. I have several pictures of you and plan to visit the place you were laid to rest, I'm doing lots of ancestry research. You will not be forgotten in our family. Thanks for your service. I hope my Daddy found you and got to know you when he passed away 2 years ago. RIP Great Grandpa.
