Here is what I have of his fathers Obituary
Roxie Peterson sent this to me we had been looking for it for a while tracing who said they had it and who said they wanted a copy. No one ever posted it for future researchers to find. So for Roxie and all of those who just keep beating on those bricks in the wall here it is for anyone interested to find.
