The MLC Modified Roman Sans Signature Series font shares the same geometry as the Spacerite Modified Roman alphabet, but contains partial “bell” or “flare” serifs on some characters, most notably on the  ‘C’, ‘E’, ‘G’, ‘J’, ‘L’, ‘S’, ‘1’, ‘2’, & ‘3’. This style was common in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. Stencil cutters in the shop would use the Spacerite alphabet as a starting point and remove some of the serifs by ignoring them while hand-cutting the stencil.

Though it will not match exactly, it may be close to other various Modified Roman sans serif fonts available in some memorial design software.
