Edward H. Malz

Edward H. Malz was only 19 when he died of wounds sustained in Sicily in the summer of 1943. The son of Edward and Katherine Krouse Malz, he had a brother Clarence who was also enlisted and one surviving sister Marjorie. (Sister Evelyn predeceased him.) From the two separate announcements in the Necrology File, it appears that in addition to the visitation at the funeral home and services at East Shore Methodist Church, Malz was also honored with a memorial service at the local high school.

Daniel Spang Hunter Jr.

Lieutenant Hunter was 23 when he died during World War II. I checked in our local newspaper archives to see if I could find out more details about his death. On a stateside military assignment for the Army Air Corps, he was involved in an automobile accident which left him with multiple injuries include fractures of his jaw and both legs. He died a week later in McCluskey General Hospital in Temple, Texas, on June 13, 1944. Hunter left behind a wife Martha and baby daughter Judith.
