Exploring Almost Forgotten Gravesites in the Great State of Ohio

Dedicated to cemetery preservation in the great state of Ohio

"A cemetery may be considered as abandoned when all or practically all of the bodies have been Removed therefrom and no bodies have been buried therein for a great many years, and the cemetery has been so long neglected as entirely to lose its identity as such, and is no longer known, recognized and respected by the public as a cemetery. 1953 OAG 2978."

Remembering Steven Paul Jobs - Born: February 25, 1955 -- Died: October 5, 2011

The title links to Steve Jobs' memorial posted today on "Find A Grave" -- "Find Famous Graves" Section. 

Most of us were aware of just how sick of a man Steve Jobs was in the last few years of his relatively young life.  

Today, he was granted eternal peace and freedom from his pain.  

Steve Jobs left a legacy as grand and far reaching as any inventor from this century or the last that we might bring to mind.  

His spirit now circles the heavens with the likes of Edison, Ford, and Bell, whose inventions reshaped the daily lives of untold millions during their lifetimes and for future generations of people they never got to meet.

May you Rest in Peace now and always Mr. Jobs. 
Your earthly work is finished.
