my great-grandfather's obit...

As swiped from the paper, although I've made some minor changes (mainly noting a nick, and after much debate, shortening the last name.)

My mom is the oldest of the grandchildren; I am the oldest of the children. There's one mistake in here, Sue isn't my grandfather's daughter, she's the wife of my late Uncle Doug. My great-grandfather, and my great-grandmother, had nine boys.

William D.

ANDERSON - A Mass of Christian burial for William "Buck" D., 88, of Anderson will be at 10 a.m. Monday at Sacred Heart Church in Anderson.
