Obituary Links for My Brother-in-law, Dwight Tellier, Retired USAF Veteran November 22, 2019

As I mentioned earlier, my brother-in-law – Rest In Peace to My Brother-in-law, Dwight T., Retired USAF Veteran Died November 15, 2019, passed away in his sleep on November 15, 2019. I didn’t mention this was my mother’s birthday although I posted about her birthday on November 15th. It was also several days after his birthday (November 10th). The funeral service started an hour ago with visitation starting two hours ago. The graveside portion of the service should be starting shortly. I updated my earlier post to reflect obit changes that happened after I made this post – Funeral Home Obituary vs. Newspaper Obituary – November 20, 2019.

Here are the newspaper – (click Read More) and funeral home – links.

Glad to see there is mention of his Air Force service on the funeral home‘s obit. It doesn’t mention his rank, but he was in 20 years and was an NCO although I am not sure what rank he held when he mustered out.

    • Thank you. He retired from the Air Force after 20 years and I’m working on my own obit for him that goes into more detail on some things that weren’t covered in the obits, including some of the funny stories he mentioned over the years. I don’t recall his rank and will ask my sister later, but he was a higher level NCO. I don’t know if my sister ordered a V. A. headstone as I figure she has enough on her mind right now.

        Double check for her. I know myself, I wish I had more presence of mind when doing the arrangements for my father. He had a Catholic, a VA and an Elks ceremony, but I still missed a few details.

      • I will. Need to set a reminder or have someone remind me if I forget.

        We talked for almost an hour after I found out Dwight had died. She’s not much of a phone talker as a rule. I was surprised he wasn’t going to be buried in the V. A. cemetery, but after hearing a cousin of ours offered them to be buried in the cemetery she created on her property for her husband, I understood why. She later gave that section of her property to my niece who will be able to visit her father’s grave whenever she wants.

      • Hopefully, she remembered to order enough death certificates. When Dad died, Mom ordered 5 thinking it would be enough as Dad didn’t have a lot of things she thought needed a death certificate. Turns out she needed 10 which was a hassle to get later, plus more expensive.

        When Mom died, Allene ordered 20 death certificates which was enough with a few spares so each of us could have a copy.

        I need to work on my obit as I am not getting any younger and prefer to include things that I want in it. It won’t be the newspaper version as they have gotten so expensive these days, but I found a site that allows you to add one.
