Geocache Description:

MEMORIAL TO MY DAD WHOM RESIDES HERE WITH MY MOTHER.

“WISCONSIN SPIRIT QUEST”

The Wisconsin Spirit Quest series of geocaches will take you to a number of historic cemeteries or other historic sites. In four years, the quest has grown to over six hundred caches hidden in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Ontario and Wisconsin and the hiders have grown to over thirty cacher teams. Over 1,000 cacher accounts had logged over 25,000 finds when we quit counting.

This cache is dedicated to my dad!


The Mausoleum

He originally grew up in South Dakota. Having never finished the sixth grade due to having to work on farms to help support the family my father was illiterate and could not read. This however did not stop him from meeting my mom, moving to Milwaukee, getting jobs as needed and doing them well to not only have but to also raise us kids, we always came first. In his spare time he learned many other skilled trades through friends of his and passing these skills on to us kids, for being illiterate he was smarter than most would think with a remarkable work ethic. He taught us everything and he could make tools and machinery sing. He was only known by one name in his home town and therefore I included it in the title "POPEYE". He now resides here for eternity in the cemetery along with my mom.

The cache container is a camouflaged container about the size of a regular soup can which contains log, pencil, mini screwdrivers and cordless screwdriver bits as this is a tool themed cache. Another cache will be hidden on a later date which will be dedicated to my mother.

Take a moment to enjoy the beauty of this cemetery while you are visiting, I have many other friends and relatives whom either reside here currently or will reside here some day.

Permission for the placement of this cache was given by the Porter family whom own the cemetery. Congrats One Way Jodi on the FTF! your efforts paid off, watch for the next one once I have it ready

PLEASE FOLLOW ANY POSTED VISITING HOURS, RESPECT THE RESIDENTS HERE AND PLEASE TRY VISIT DURING DAYLIGHT HOURS

.The cache is not located near a grave...Do not disturb monuments. If you find a fallen US flag, please stick it back in the ground. You must sign the cache log to claim a find. As always, please be respectful, and cache in, trash out.
