Last Known Activity
Stationed aboard USS SEADRAGON (SS 194); was taken prisoner in the Manila/Cavite area (possibly from Naval Hospital Cañacao) after SEADRAGON sailed on 16 December 41. He was in a Japanese POW camp in the Philippines until October 1944. He was placed aboard the unmarked Japanese hellship Arisan Maru on 20 Oct 44 and died four days later when the ship, transporting ~1800 Allied POWs from the Philippines to Japan, was torpedoed and sunk by the American submarine SHARK near She Nam on the east coast of China.  Only 7 POWs survived.
