I will swing by the cemetery tomorrow and get a photo of the headstone. Sorry there wasn't a full obituary, but the Law funeral home here in Colorado Springs may have additional info.

Best Regards,

Nick Hardy

So, William is buried at the Evergreen Cemetery in Colorado Springs.  This is the same cemetery that his sister, Edith (LeMaster) MEINHOLTZ is buried in.  I created a FindAGrave memorial page for William today.
