He died Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014, at a Long Beach hospital of kidney failure, his wife, Dorothy, told The Associated Press on Monday. He was 92, and his passing leaves only seven surviving World War II Medal of Honor recipients. (AP Photo/The Orange County Register, Jebb Harris, File) MAGAZINES OUT; LOS ANGELES TIMES OUT.
