Bio Uncle Don "Monk' Submitted by: Tim Dotterer
My Uncle, Don "Monk" Dotterer was the sexton of the Cherokee Cemetery for many, many years. In fact, that was my first paying job was helping him dig the graves out there, along with my Uncle Bill Dotterer. There is a plaque in the front entrance mentioning his name and all he did for that cemetery. He would not allow a backhoe to touch the grounds to dig the graves so for thirty or so years they were all hand dug until he retired. After that they started to use the backhoe. When he passed away, the city workers came out and hand dug his grave. I thought it was very appropriate.
