For some reason we can only find very little information about him here and other sites. We have found him under the name Private First Class Andre D. Lopez US Army. Service number 39009776 63rd Infantry 6th Division. Born 1916 Enlisted 07 Jul 1941 San Francisco. Died 26 Jan 1945 Battle of Luzon. Killed by Kamikaze attack. 39 soldiers lost their lives along with my uncle. If anyone has any information about him, please let us know.

Without knowing what battalion or company he was in, it’s difficult to say exactly where he was KIA.
Personally, I don’t think he was killed by Kamikaze unless he was at sea. On January 26, 1945, the 63rd IR was in the vicinity of the Apangat River and the village of Agat. During that period of time, they encountered large mortar fire, causing huge casualties. Not having more information, it’s my guess that this is where he was killed.
