Tombstone Tuesday

Crocodile Hunter Henry Lindelie in center of photo.




Mario was Henry's brother

Both men were great uncles to my brother-in-law Bill Leavengood.


Diana writes: Henry and Mario were Bill's great uncles on their mom's side. Bill's grandmother Billie was the oldest child. Then the two boys. For years there was a family legend that Henry was CIA under cover of United Fruit and that he disappeared in the jungles of Honduras and was never heard from again. And then I found his grave. Ho hum. Anyhow....They did both work for United Fruit but more importantly all three children owned a ranch in Cuba in the 20's and provided what would now be called Eco-tourism. All three were fluent in Spanish which is cool since they were the children of Norwegian immigrants and born in South Dakota.
