Beverly, I am so sorry that I missed your post to me! If I read correctly it was back in 2003! I really apologize for not answering sooner and when I tried to email your email was no longer good. Yes, Buster was my great uncle and Aunt Della passed away in 2007. I don’t really know much about the McElroy family but may have a little bit about Uncle Buster if you would like to contact me. This was Aunt Della's obituary from the Amarillo Globe-News on July 2, 2007.
Birth: Jun. 20, 1917
Death: Jun. 29, 2007
