    • My Grampa Spaulding was a very fun loving, respected, proud man who never showed his temper that I ever saw. I drove him and Grama up the Calif. coast in '79 in my Motorhome to visit relatives. Saw Edith, Ruth, Gene, Bud and their families - made him and Grama so happy. Spent New Years (1980) @ Buds' in Oakdale. My Mom tells me growing up he taught her how to work on machinery and could fix just about anything. A legacy passed on to her-he called her Blonde Bomber..he was so loved. My name is Connie (Dicks) Suttles and we miss him and Gramma very much, but she I know is holding his hand in Heaven.
