Master Sergeant, Detachment 4, US Army Training Group, World War II. Wife was LaRue Nielsen Bates. Died of Non-Battle Injuries in the cemetery records, but his death certificate shows that he committed suicide by shooting himself with a .38 caliber pistol. A contributing factor was his depression for over one year prior to his death.
