Could someone please tell me how to get an obituary for:

Wallace D. TIMM
Born August 8 (or 10), 1896 in Minnesota
Died April 29, 1978 in California

The Social Security Death Index shows his last residence as El Cajon, San Diego County, CA 92020.

The California Death Index shows his place of death as Riverside (County?), CA.

Usually called "Wally", he was an aviation pioneer: barnstormer, instructor, designer, builder. He worked with his brother Otto William Timm in the Timm Aircraft Corporation and in other aviation firms.

I would appreciate a copy of the obit (which I will happily pay for); any advice from local researchers (I'm in Tennessee); or contact with Timm descendants.
