From the Oregonian, 11 Mar. 1948:

Double Rites Set for Pair.

Double funeral services will be Saturday at 10 A. M. in Lincoln Memorial Park chapel for Frederick Scott Ravin and John Crockett Ravin, Portland brothers, both of whom held ratings as torpedoman first class in the navy, who lost their lives in the Pacific war. The American Legion Post named for them will conduct the services.

Frederick Ravin had been in the navy eight years and was on shore duty on Cavite when Manila fell. He joined the fighting on Bataan, was wounded in January, 1942, and was later reported to be a prisoner of war. In March, 1945, the navy reported he had been killed in action. He was 25 years of age.

John Ravin, who was 21 years old, entered the navy in 1938, when he was 17. He was a member of the crew of a destroyer on duty in the south Pacific. The navy announced in December, 1942 that he had been killed in action in the performance of his duty.

Both bodies were recently returned from temporary burial in Pacific areas. The mother of the brothers, formerly Mrs. Jeanne Ravin of 2907 N. E. Couch, now Mrs. Jeanne Ruth of San Francisco, will come to Portland for the services.

Masonic rites will be conducted and the military rites and a firing squad will be supplied by Frederick and John Ravin post No. 134, American Legion. Officiating will be the Very Reverend Charles M. Guilbert of St. Stephen's Episcopal Cathedral. The Ross Hollywood Mortuary will be in charge.
