Could some kind soul look up an obituary for me for Francis Howard Koffel please?? He died in Belgium on January 13, 1945. His family lived in Kootenai and I'm sure they posted an obituary as he was killed in action. I would be most grateful for any help at all. Thank-you.

The volunteers at the museum checked the newspaper and did not find an obit. But that is not saying there was not one. I have found acouple of the people that died in WW II may not be reported dead for several months. It may take a little bit to find the notification.
