              Dear Mr. Campos,


              Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


              If he died while he was in the Army, we suggest that you request a copy of his Individual Deceased Personnel File (IDPF). IDPFs from 1940-1976 for U.S. Army personnel with surnames that begin with A-L are in the custody of the National Archives at St. Louis (RL-SL). For more information about these records, please contact RL-SL via email at stl.archives@nara.gov. IDPFs often include the next-of-kin and burial site.


              Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RL-SL. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.


              An obituary may have been published in his hometown newspaper. We suggest contacting that newspaper or the local library for a search of obituaries printed in early to mid 1975.


              We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
