GEORGE M. DENT, JR., LCDR, USN
George Dent, Jr. '47
Date of birth: September 11, 1925
Date of death: April 24, 1959
From the 1947 Lucky Bag:
George was lost when his T2V Seastar jet trainer crashed near Townsville, N.C. on April 24, 1959.
He is buried in Alabama.
From researcher Kathy Franz:
George married Hilda Howard on July 8, 1950, when he was stationed in Jacksonville. Their wedded life was cut short when he sailed to the Mediterranean; so in November, she left for Paris and Leghorn, Italy, to visit him. They hoped to visit not only Italy, but France and Switzerland, too.
George was survived by his wife, their children Hilda (5), Laura (11 months) and George, III (4.) He was also survived by his mother Helen and three sisters, Sara, Margaret and Annie. His father, once president of a wholesale grocery company, had died on November 30, 1940.
Dent Road, onboard NAS Patuxent River, Maryland, is named for George.
He was married, apparently in June 1950. (The OCR is very confused; can't even determine bride's name.)
