From the 1953 Lucky Bag:


John and another pilot were lost when their T-33 Shooting Star crashed near Hill AFB, Utah, on April 19, 1962. He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery with his wife, Dorothy.

The aircraft was assigned to the Air Force Logistics Command, but appears that John and the other pilot were attending graduate school.
