Birth: unknown
Death: Aug. 15, 1944

He was serving aboard the Landing Ship Tank -USS LST-282 which was sunk by a single Henschel Hs 293 radio- controlled glide bomb, an attack which cost 40 lives aboard the ship.

Remaining defiantly afloat and heavily aflame, LST-282 continued to drift towards Green Beach while suffering numerous ammunition detonations before she finally grounded to the left flank of the beachhead. Sinking in the shallow water with the majority of her hull and superstructure above water, fires continued to burn aboard LST-282 for over two days before they finally ran out of fuel, leaving the ship a charred hulk.

Reboarded and found to be beyond salvage, LST-282 was declared a war loss on August 17th, 1944 and left in her sad state for the duration of the war. Postwar, much of the wreck was salvaged for scrap steel but much of the ship’s lower engine room and fittings remain onsite today.
