Graveyard Rabbits Carnival--October 2010

The topic for the October 2010 edition of the Graveyard Rabbits Carnival is: An Occupation Or Hobby Memorialized in Stone. This topic was submitted by Diane Wright, who authors three GYR blogs: The Kansas Rabbit, The Wright Graveyard Stew, and The Grave Yard Rabbit Travels Wright. Have you found an occupation taken to the grave? Pride in a hobby included on the tombstone? Show us what you've found. We are all interested. I know there are some great stories out there, so share with all the rabbits!

James R. "Poley" McClintock
Shawnee Presbyterian Church Cemetery
Shawnee on Delaware, Pennylvania
Poley was a member of Fred Waring's Pennsylvanians
and is buried in the same cemetery as his friend, Fred Waring.

Spencer Lee
Hampton Cemetery
Allison Park, Pennsylvania
Spencer took his love of the Pittsburgh Steelers with him.

Jay W. Lowrey
Hiland Presbyterian Church Cemetery
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
One of the more beautiful tombstones I have ever seen.
Jay must have been a lover of the great outdoors.

Paul M. Cox
Hampton Cemetery
Allison Park, Pennsylvania
Paul must have been blessed with musical talents,
especially with a guitar.

Frank and Michael Webb
Hampton Cemetery
Allison Park, Pennsylvania
I'm not sure which of these fellows loved his Harley...
maybe both.
