Hal Ettinger b. 1951 d. 2009

Hal was instrumental in getting the Sons of Jacob cemetery near Garske rededicated. Hal’s great grandfather, Simon Ettinger was buried there in 1891, along with at least 15 others settlers. Hal did of lot of research and leg work to raise awareness, contact other descendants, fund a beautiful new monument, and arrange a day of rededication for the cemetery in September of 2006. Hal’s efforts also resulted in raising several thousand additional dollars to the cemetery’s trust fund. (Steve Shark)
