Stevie Ray's marker as it was when the site was visited. Due to a tragic fire in 1967, all of Stevie Ray's military records were lost in the Gibson home. Without the necessary documents, the Gibson's could not receive a proper stone from the VA and had no means to purchase a stone themselves. For many years all that marked his grave was the funeral parlor sign until they were able to install this humble stone. The Association has rallied to their cause and soon Stevie will have the proper marker and will be shown here as soon as it is installed.
