I'm confused on the death date of Dave Alexander too! I truly believe that I have his death certificate somewhere but can't put my fingers on it at this time. The conflict for me is the obituary for Carmelita Judge Tanco. It reads as follows:
* Obituary posted in "The Daily Review" of Hayward, California 4/19/1972.
TANCO, Carmel ? In Oakland April 17, 1972. Dearly beloved wife of the late David Tanco; Loving sister of Mercedes Gi?rard; Ideaized grandmother of Bruce and Michelle Tanco; Also survived by nieces and nephews.

Interment: St. Mary's Cemetery, Oakland.

I got the death certificates from one of the decendants of the Tanco/Hunter marriage. The problem was that they were trying to figure out what happened to the parents. There are several "Lillian" children born to this portion of the Tanco line and this particular child (Lillian Patricia) was raised by Lillian Dot Tanco, her aunt. To the best of my knowledge Lillian Patricia has no pictures. It is my understanding that she wasn't particularly close to her aunt. I have spoken with her and she was very nice and I think is still living. I'll look for a telephone number!!!
