My uncle's name on the marker is incorrect. His name was Carol Albert Smolko and he was called Charlie by friends and family. The name on the marker is Rudolph Smolko, which I think is a clerical error since there is a Rudolph several names above him. His brother Valent was called Vallie which is correct on the marker.
