|Raymond "Dutch" Bartram|
|Dutch and his sister, Grace Bartram|
Tragically, Uncle Dutch's life was cut short on January 12, 1954, when he was walking across San Pablo Avenue and was hit by a bus. His wife, Helen, had this wonderful gravestone made as a tribute to his full, yet too short, life.
Dutch was buried at Lone Tree Cemetery in Hayward, Alameda County, California. The tribute reads:
I have hung up my spurs and saddle
Put my horse in the old Corral
Bid Goodbye to my pals in the bunkhouse
And the range that I loved so well.
