Clayton Loucks Jr.
Clayton Loucks Jr. was struck with “sleeping sickness” at about age 7, likely a related outcome of the 1918 Flu Pandemic. His mobility was severely restricted as a result of encephalitis, and he suffered from other health issues as well. He never married and spent much of his adult life in hospital. He died on April 6, 1987, and is also interred at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. (This image shows what Clayton looked like in life. It was created using the MyHeritage Deep Nostalgia app.)

I found amongst my grandmother’s photo collection the obituary for her mother. I knew she died in 1957 (as I’ve got a record of the grave site), but several emails to the cemetery to determine the actual date of her death have gone unanswered. Luckily, there are three other obituaries
Leading Aircraftman Leonard Joseph Gray was killed in a tragic, preventable accident that led to changes in the way night flying is conducted in the military.
