Three months ago, Floyd Decker, an ex-employee of Rose City Cemetery and Funeral Home, filed allegations with the Oregon Mortuary and Cemetery Board against Rose City for racism and corpse abuse. He suffered an internet public thrashing and was booted from the industry for his actions. Now the tables have turned -- he was right.
The State's Attorney General's Office found Rose City Cemetery and Funeral Home and their General Manager, Michael J. Orcutt, guilty of allegations of racism. The allegations of corpse abuse are still under investigation by the board.
Now, the AG's office has suspended the operating license of Rose City Cemetery and Funeral Home. Floyd Decker has gone to Boise, ID to take care of his checkered past and looks forward to moving on from the "darkness" that Rose City Created.
It is interesting to note that no one believed him and yet he was backed up by the Oregon Mortuary and Cemetery Board and the State's Attorney General's office. It is also interesting to note that when Decker was terminated after taking two days off -- and nearly two weeks after inquiring as to whether the board has ever investigated Rose City Cemetery and Funeral Home -- Michael J. Orcutt told Floyd Decker that, "I don't think you are even cut out for this business." Think about that, constant reader.
