Community makes it good after vandalism of pioneer gravestone

first_imgEven though he died in 1908, age 41, Alexander Stuber now has the newest gravestone in the Camas Cemetery.“The important thing is, he has a stone,” said Joey Fuerstenberg, owner of Vancouver Granite Works.Fuerstenberg and employee Kyle Cochran installed the granite marker Friday morning, replacing the marble stone that was destroyed last fall.Stuber’s grave marker was one of 15 headstones toppled by vandals on Oct. 23, according to Camas police. Cemetery crews and volunteers righted all the headstones except for Stuber’s; it was broken into three pieces.Camas police investigated the incident and by the next day had arrested Michael Garwood, 21, of Camas. He originally faced 15 counts of violating laws that protect cemeteries and second-degree criminal mischief, but the prosecuting attorney’s office didn’t file the charges.Charges against Garwood could be filed later, Camas Police Sgt. Scot Boyles said, though police are actively looking for a second suspect, which would wrap up the case.Stuber’s new stone is a near replica of the original.Rebecca Reich, Fuerstenberg’s 25-year-old daughter and office manager at the company, reproduced the image of a rose for the new grave by using a rubbing of the old grave and looking at photos of what the marker used to look like. That design was then etched onto the stone.“It’s fun to do something to give back to the community,” Fuerstenberg said.He used stainless steel pins to connect the foundation, base and headstone together. Fuerstenberg said he doubts that the older marble stones have pins.last_img read more
