Dear Mr. Snow,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
For records relating to deaths after 1974 of American citizens in a foreign country, please contact the Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs. There also may have been a death certificate created for him by the Japanese government. The Bureau of Consular Affairs or the U.S. Embassy & Consulates in Japan may be able to advise on accessing these records.
He and other recently deceased retired Marines are listed in SEMPER FIDELIS MEMORANDUM FOR RETIRED MARINES Volume 60 No 1 January-March 2016. No particulars about his death or burial are provided.
We hope this is helpful.
