From the 1938 Lucky Bag:
John was lost when USS Wasp (CV 7) was sunk by a Japanese submarine on September 15, 1942. He appears to have been a part of ship's company, though unable to find details of his service. (There is no evidence that he was ever an aviator.)
His wife was listed as next of kin.
