The untimely death of Terry Jr. in a mid-air collision while flying an F-4 fighter on a training mission over Korea on 30 January 1976 was a hard blow to an old fighter pilot (Colonel Frank Terry Ellis, Sr.)
He was buried with full military honors in Section 4, Grave 3210-A, Arlington National Cemetery.
His grandfather, Arthur Morris Ellis, Colonel, United States Army, is also buried in Arlington National Cemetery (Section 4, Grave 2787-A).
Michael Robert Patterson was born in Arlington and is the son of a former officer of the US Army. So it was no wonder that sooner or later his interests drew him to American history and especially to American military history. Many of his articles can be found on renowned portals like the New York Times, Washingtonpost or Wikipedia.
