In 1973, he disappeared in a plane crash, along with several others, returning from Mexico. But, his family wasn't notified of his death in a plane crash until years later. His body was claimed and sent to Rockford, Illinois for burial by Fr. Thomas Considine, now a priest of that Diocese. Burial in St. Joseph Cemetery.
