Can anyone translate the Hebrew on this stone? I know it is really hard to read and I'm hoping to get a chance to go to the cemetery myself and take a better photo or at least copy it by hand. I'm most interested in learning his father's name, if possible. Also, any confirmation of the date on the bottom or his age would be great! My records indicate that he died in 1900 or 1901, but 5660 would be 1899.

Thanks!
Robin
