In 1916, he was stationed in the Philippines, where he caught pneumonia. He was shipped back to the states to the US Naval Hospital, Mare Island, California, in the hope that more could be done for him, there, but it was not to be.

Information on his career, and confirmation that he died in the hospital, is in the October 14, 1916 Army-Navy-Air Force Register and Defense Times.
