Life & Loss

Unable to find any information about Alfred's life or loss; except that he is listed as being involved in an aircraft accident. A fragment of a search result indicates he was lost in this air crash (of a SB2-C Helldiver), and that his wife was eight months pregnant with their son. (The dead link points to a newsletter apparently authored by his son.]

He was married in February 1947.

Alfred is buried in California and has a memory marker in Arlington National Cemetery.
