      Directions to his unmarked grave: Walk through the main gate past the office and follow the stone wall down past Section 11 where the road curves. Walk to the shelter on your right and turn left towards the Pacific Ocean. Walk about half way down until you reach the Melick Family Vault and turn left down the track until you come to the Browne/Darling Family Grave. The double unmarked grave is to the left of the Darling Grave.
