Death certificate found. Also on Ancestry.com.
He'd been in the Missouri Pauper? Hospital for 2.5 months; he'd been struggling with chronic bronchitis for 2 years. He's buried at Pacific Mo..? cemetery. Unfortunately "Germany" is listed as the place of birth for both himself and his parents. His wife is not named on the certificate (I didn't see a place for it).

If this was indeed a Pauper's hospital, it's not likely he had an obit. But I could be wrong about that.
