Yeah, I have two newspaper clippings, and at least one of them has the date preserved (not to mention I was alive when he died in 1971 and knew him well--and if he had died in 1961, it would have predated me!) Maybe that is something I can look into when I go up there in October...Thanks so much for your help.

Any idea on how to find where someone is buried? I would have assumed that he was buried with his parents. The only clue I have is from the obituary which was in a Vancouver newspaper, the Columbian, which only says that the service was at First Presbyterian Church and Evergreen Funeral Home was in charge of the arrangements. He lived in Burlington at the time of his death, but if the obituary were printed in the Columbian like that, I would have assumed they would have mentioned that services were in another town. So I guess that's why I thought he was buried in Vancouver...

I don't find any mention of an Evergreen Funeral Home, so doubt they are still in business.
