    Wow but they should have proofread that...they way they have it written, this guy has died twice! He obviously died on June 10, 2004, but apparently he ALSO died (preceding his wife) on Aug. 29, 1996. Now that's an accomplishment worth noting!!! :eek:

    The obit you all have posted was that of my grandfather. Just happened to be researching tonight as I suddenly realized this evening how much I missed him. I don't appreciate the humor. He was a wonderful, loving person. He worked hard and yes he did work at the My-T-Fine Pudding Plant for several years. All of us grandkids loved it when he was able to bring home the extra boxes of pudding. And the type-o on the obit was the fault of the newspaper.
