He was working in a mill in Danville at that time and was probably preparing to be drafted into WWII. He worked as a young boy delivering groceries in Altavista, Va. He was buried at the family farm in Hill Grove, Pittsylvania Co., but, in 1976, was moved to Greenhill Cem in Altavista, Campbell Co., Va.
