He died by accidental drowning in Lake Erie, N.W. of Lorain, Ohio. His body was recovered on July 14, 1953. In the newspaper article, "Body Recovered", Page 8, 2nd column from the right - "The Newark Advocate" - Newark, Ohio - July 16, 1953 - Volume 198, Number 97 - it states "...drowned Oct. 12 when he was swept off a sailboat by a boom."

NOTE: On his Death Certificate Photocopy, his middle-name is spelled Lamount. It also states that he was born on November 27, in York Center, Ohio. I used the birth information which he gave himself, under oath, on his U.S. Passport Application Photocopy.
