Hi, I checked the Oregonian today. I wasn't very successfull in finding an obituary on him. I believe the city of Gresham aslo has a newspaper. So, when I am in pdx in two weeks I will go to their office and see if his obituary is in there.
I do have family in Grants Pass as well as Meford. I was down in Jacksonville in February of this year. As a great great aunt is buried in the cemetery there.
