The war on the western front was destined to last only five more weeks when PFC Hempen was killed on March 31, 1945, at Schloven, Germany. He was among the American forces rushing pell-mell into Germany meeting little resistance in some sectors. The Rhine had been crossed and the Ruhr valley encircled and it already had given up many of the 360,000 German prisoners when Hempen fell. Adrian served with the 80th Tank Battalion.
Adrian is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Herman H. Hempen of Irishtown Township, Illinois, and four brothers, Harold M., Robert H., Lloyd H., and Donald and three sisters, Evelyn E., Marian L. and Pearl M. Hempen.
