Find a previous owner of my Lola...

He lived in Monroe, MI.
Does anyone know where Otto Uecker is now ??
I am investigating the possibility that Doug Shierson owned the Lola in 1970, with Chuck Parsons driving, it then passed on to Oliver Jones in 1971. Can anyone shine some light on these men ?
Thanks, Tom Walker.

A guick Google reveals that an Otto W. Uecker was laid to rest at St John's Church, Gillett, Wisconsin in 1975.
Given the fact that the name must be unusual and that WI and MI are neighbouring states give or take a Great Lake I fear this might be your man.
