Long Description:
Bue Sandy Hentze was just a few months shy of living to be 105 years of age. He is only the second WWI veteran grave I've come across who lived to be a centenarian. A nice achievement for sure.

Some quick stats I was able to gather for Bue:

Son of Johan Michael Hentze Joensen (1860-1948) and Arrina Elisabeth Methea Poulsen (1861-1953), brother of Einar Hentze (born 1890).

Since 1902, five generations of the Hentze family have lived on a small river bottom farm located two miles due east of Junction City, Oregon. The distinctive farming style practiced by the Hentze clan can be traced back to Johan Hentze who immigrated to the United States from the Faroe Islands. For more than a century the unspoken goal, “to perpetuate the good in life”, has driven family members to preserve in the creation of a small but operational farm. The family registered the farm as an official Century Farm with the Oregon database.

Johan and Arina (Bue's parents) first traveled to Nebraska before settling in Chicago, Illinois where their sons Ejner and Bue were born.

Bue's brother, Ejner was mainly responsible for keeping the family farm active and prosperous over the years. I wasn't able to gather any info on what Bue did for his vocation.
