Franklin J. Fischer Addition

For many years, he served as Secretary of the Cemetery Board and was responsible for financing and managing the funds in order to purchase additional land for expansion.
Franklin physically placed and finished many of the present monument foundations, as well as selling lots and monuments.
The Valley View Cemetery was his hobby and passion that he cared for and loved greatly.
