Here he is listed in the NJ Death Index, though given name mispelled in it, but SS matches up with the SSDI record. 2 Aug 1981 in Wayne Twp., Passaic County, NJ.

Oh my goodness, he was only 22 when he died? That's so very sad. Caryn, it appears you can get a copy of his birth certificate from NJ. It would have his parent's names on it, and you might build a tree as a tribute to him and your love for him.

I understand the pain of a lost love. I have one myself. I will never ever forget him. The impact he made on my life is immeasurable. Though it was 60 years ago and I have gone on to have a long and happy marriage and wonderful children rarely a day goes by that I don't think of him, or something doesn't remind me of him. My heart reaches out to yours. Aren't we glad we are capable of such love? I put my arms around you. -{{{Caryn}}}--
