Sep. 9, 1965 Bluefield Mercer County West Virginia, USA
I don't know which is correct, but I just found a death date of 8 Oct 1965 on the wvculture.org site. The death information is shown in the Register of Deaths No.11 - Mercer County, W. Va., page 77. It also says he was buried on 10 Oct 1965. And it has his middle name as Slusher. I've never heard of that one, have you?
