James Ray “Jim” Frankfother
March 21, 1930 ~ January 4, 2020
Jim was born in Semi-
nole, Okla., and spent his
early youth there. He was
a part of the great Ameri-
can migration, during the
dust bowl years; to Califor-
nia. In 1945 he and his fam-
ily moved to the Hood
River valley area, where
he remained the rest of
his life with the exception
of his military service.
Jim enlisted in the Army
and served courageously
in Korea, where the extreme cold left him with per-
manent injury.
Upon returning home from the war Jim met and
married his love, Doris Van Alstine. They lived in
Hood River and White Salmon where Jim worked in
the timber industry. While Jim and Doris had no off-
spring, they were the doting parents of a series of
poodles, which brought them many hours of delight.
Jim was a true outdoorsman and loved nothing better
than hunting and fishing. He was also a great fan of
country music, cowboy boots and western movies.
In his later years Jim developed dementia and lived
at the Oregon Veterans Home in The Dalles, where he
had a reputation for being gentle, good natured, and
positive. The family sends special thanks to all his de-
voted caregivers at OVH.
Jim was preceded in death by his, wife Doris Van
Alstine, his parents David and Kathrin Frankfother,
his brother Don Frankfother, and his sister Kay
He leaves behind his brother Burt Loyd, (Kim) and
numerous nieces and nephews.
Though no services are planned at this time, Jim
will be buried alongside Doris and his brother Don at
Pine Grove cemetery near Dee Oregon.

Roger Immanuel Person
May 11, 1941 ~ December 11, 2020
Roger Immanuel Person
passed away unexpectedly
at Mid-Columbia Medical
Center on December 11,
2019 surrounded by his
loving family. Roger was
78 years old.
On May 11, 1941 Royal
and Borghild (Bjorngjeld)
Person welcomed Roger
into the world in Powers
Lake, N.D. Roger would
later be joined by two
younger siblings Bruce
Person and Dale Person.
Roger was a true patriot
and loved his country very
much. In 1960 at the age of
19, Roger enlisted in the
United States Navy where
he worked as an engineer
and served two tours in
Vietnam delivering much
needed supplies to Ameri-
can troops. Roger seldom
spoke of his time in the
service, however on occa-
sion he would share a cou-
ple of his harrowing expe-
riences, but only when
asked. One of those expe-
riences included the test-
ing of atomic weapons. As
Roger recounted, he was
serving on an aircraft car-
rier in the Pacific Ocean.
Once they arrived to their
destination, a smaller
craft was dispatched to a
small atoll where they pre-
pared for the test. Once
the men returned and
were back on board, the
carrier relocated a safe
distance from the atoll and
the weapon was detonated.
Roger would speak of how
the ensuing shock wave
was so intense, it physical-
ly rolled the ship to one
side and then the other as
the wall of sound rolled
out and then back in. To
hear him describe the
image of the mushroom
cloud would cause the hair
on your arms to raise.
In 1964 Roger met the
love of his life Mary
(Mason). Following a short
courtship, the two mar-
ried on September 28, 1964
in Bismark, N. D.

ment, Roger enjoyed trav-
elling, wood working and
