I have asked my father and my oldest uncle and far as I know, my uncle Bud and his company were wiring a bridge for demolition was told that a mistake was made and they loaded too heavy of a charge when the explosives were detonated. We don't know if it was the blast or the pieces of shrapnel that took him down. Thanks again for your help, Martha Kennedy Beesley
