Preceded by his wife Mary's death (from complications of influenza, pneumonia and possible hunger) in 1936, he passed away at Aspinwall Hospital in 1945 from complications of rheumatoid arthritis from which he had suffered for many years. He is buried in Grandview Cemetary, Johnstown, Pennsylvania next to Mary in the Wentworth family plot. Hiram H.
