Monument-style gravestone with Celtic cross

Chapel Section


1908 - 1942

Lieut. Carl Zeidler

Elected Mayor in 1940, Zeidler requested a leave from his duties in 1942 to fight in WWII. He died six months later when his ship, the USS La Salle, was torpedoed and everyone on board perished. Because his remains were never recovered, he was memorialized with a cenotaph — a memorial for someone not buried at that site.
