PFC Orvil B Coy

PFC Orvil B. Coy was born 23 Dec 1920 in Oregon to Oren Blaine and Hattie Ann (Lane).  Oren was a lumberman and worked in a sawmill to support the family.  Orvil also worked in a sawmill.

In July 1942 Orvil was drafted.  We don't know where Orvil was until we find that he was assigned from the replacement depot to A Company 116th Infantry on 9 Sep 1944.  He was promoted to PFC on 21 Sep 1944.  PFC Coy was killed in action on 13 Oct 1944.

Orvil is buried in the Masonic Cemetery in Coquille, Oregon.
