He was enumerated on 6 APR 1940 in Sherwood, Irion, Texas, USA, Sheet 2, Family 45, Image of census attached to this memorial.

He served in the US NAVY during World War II as a Coxswain.

A coxswain in the U.S. Navy is the helmsman (driver) of a boat, such as the boats that may ferry ship crews around a harbor. According to the nautical glossary of the Naval History & Heritage Command website, the term originated in the 15th century English navy as a combination of the words cockboat (the captain's personal boat) and swain (servant). Originally, the coxswain in charge of the captain's boat was a Petty Officer, but over time the term came to be applied to the helmsman of any Navy boat, regardless of his rating or rank.
