Tombstone Tuesday – Charles Richard “Dick” Waits (1919 – 1945) (Color)

November 24th, 2009 No comments

This morning, I received a booklet with a color picture of Charles Richard “Dick” Waits’ headstone.  Recently, I sent a request (with payment) to the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) to place a floral spray at Dick’s headstone.  They placed the flowers on November 11, Veterans Day, and took the above picture.  Please visit my other blog posts for more information on Dick’s life and his military service.

Today’s obituary is of my first cousin, twice removed, Floyd Jacob Mast, and was featured in the 9/7/1989 edition of the Lancaster Eagle Gazette:

He was a member of Lancaster United Brethren in Christ Church. He was an employee of Lancaster Glass Corporation and retired from Lancaster Meter Parts.

Amspaugh and Kelli S. Van Meter; five great-grandchildren; two nieces; and cousins.

The funeral service will be at 1:30 p.m. Friday in the chapel of Frank E. Smith Funeral Home, with the Rev. Glenn Williams officiating. Burial will follow in Tschopp Cemetery.

This is the last in the Lancaster, Ohio obituary series.  Many thanks again to Charlotte Dittmar for taking the time to visit the Lancaster library, find the obituaries, copy and mail them.  I hope to make many more family connections with the information from these obituaries.
