Well, it is the actor famous for his role as Reverend Alden on “Little House on the Prairie”, Robert William “Dabbs” Greer. He was raised here in Anderson, Missouri and was called, “Billy Bob” by locals.
Grandma’s Attic would like to have Mr. Greer’s date of death put on his headstone as well as having a commemorative bench placed close by his grave site as a memorial to: William Robert “Billy Bob”-“Dabbs” Greer, with one of his quotes inscribed on the top, back:
"Every character actor, in their own little sphere, is the lead."
as well as having this picture of him etched on the bench.
