Died of a heart attack in Sykes, Montana 12 September 1917.

He was a musician by profession so that probably is the reason that when he enlisted in the 7th Calvalry he was a private, serving in the band.

When the 7th Calvary, under Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer left Fort Abraham Lincoln, the band was no doubt left behind, as he did not participate in the Battle of Little Big Horn. His record says that he was on detached service, meaning he was probably at Fort Abraham Lincoln. Custer would not have wanted or needed a band at this point in time.
