His plot is between sister Marjorie & aunt Ethel Jones' markers.
The school bombing occurred the day of his 8th birthday. He would die
eight days shy of the first anniversary of the bombing.
In a March 2010 conversation with his sister Norma Jean's son Danny
it was learned that he had died as a result of the lingering injuries
that he had sustained in the blast, 358 days after the incident. This
was one of the few family recollections of that era that she had
passed on to others.
