All crew members were killed. Eleven bodies were found and buried in separate graves by the Chinese. Last contact was by radar over Yellow River. Since radar of that early era was rarely used for guidance, it was believed they ran out of fuel. His remains were indistinguishable from other crewmen and they were buried in a single-casket group burial in the Zachary Taylor National Cemetery, Louisville, Kentucky, on 17 May 1949 (Sec. E, sites 66-68). The family placed a memorial marker in the Restland Memorial Park, Bishop, Texas.
