David died on Leyte Island in the Philippines, where Gen MacArthur led his troops in one of the bloodiest battles of WW2.

David was a Navy seaman. He contracted typhus while on the island, which ultimately killed him, although he would have died an early death due to Huntington's had he survived the typhus..

He left a wife and son in New York. His son died very young of Huntington's Disease.

Although it did not cause his death, David had Huntington's as well, though he did not know it. His father and most of his siblings died of Huntington's.
