Answered by Catherine Mansell (Roger Mansell's daughter).

Q: When and where will there be a funeral or memorial for Roger Mansell?

His wish was to be buried in a military cemetery and because these are in short supply, the funeral will probably be in Sacramento, a substantial distance from his residence.

In the meantime, my husband and I arranged a mass for him in Mexico City on October 28th. (Not only is his son-in-law Mexican, but over many years, both though the family and his many visits to Los Cabos and Mexico City, my dad has many Mexican friends.)

In Palo Alto, his family is making plans for a celebration of his legacy, in particular his research, the donation of his archive to the Hoover Institution, and his book, Captured: The Forgotten Men of Guam.

May this website also serve as a memorial and a place where
friends may leave their memories.

Q: Is there a place / way to make make a donation in his name to support POW research?

A: Yes, the
Descendants Group, Auxiliary of the American Defenders of Bataan and Corregidor, will happily accept tax-deductible donations to sponsor the "Roger Mansell Guest Lecture" at their annual convention.
