I love Curly Howard and Shemp Howard died there also pic today of Shemp Howard i no not Real grave but is pic of book of memory
To find Jerome 'Curly' Howard's Grave, go to the SW corner of graveyard by road. He lies on the western side, 6 rows deep and about 150 feet up that row.
Peaceful place to visit loved ones.
I was happy to finally see the final resting place and pay my respects to my favorite stooge, Jerome Lester Horwitz or better known as "Curly Howard" one of the funniest men who ever lived. I was also said to see that it was not kept as nice as some other tombs. Shemp Howard's resting place is inside the mausoleum, real close to Curly's grave. If your ever in East Los Angeles!! Take some time to visit both graves at Home Of Peace Memorial Park Cemetery, the final restig place of two of the Stooges. If you're going to visit come in on the Whittier Blvd side and ask any of the ground keepers for directions to the graves.
