Did you know that the very famous Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp died of prostrate cancer in Jan 13, 1929? According to the Legends of America Website (2008), the famous lawman was in Los Angeles, California, when he died at 80 years old. He was cremated and buried in his wife's family plot in Colma, California. His wife Josephine Wyatt died in 1944 and was buried beside of her husband. She promised to always be with him and she remained by his side throughout his many amazing adventures. Josephine is now following him on a new adventure and their resting spot remains untouched to this day! Wyatt Earp is one of my favorite legends and I was saddened to learn that he died of prostrate cancer. We need to find a cure for all those touched by cancer now, since this disease has killed people for many centuries.
